Of course, we don't favor Flash for our own web purposes. However, for the
contest, we're encouraging participation from all over the web, so
we're using aggregator software called Miro Community. MC supports all video
types, including OGG Theora files. Perhaps when the contest is over, we'll
set up a hosting platform to convert and serve all the videos up using HTML5
and Theora. We would be happy to have many open format submissions. :)
