Hmm.. I'm not anti-flash, but would definitely prefer a free alternative! I Look forward to the ogg video html inclusion in Firefox 3.1, and it would be only logical for Phoronix to make use of that. On one condition:
Don't ever post a POS quality video (also the TI mini-projector video) like that again! Seriously, have Phoronix checked the videos before posting them? Assuming you did, where is the "Excuse us for the technical problems, and expect a shock if you wear headphones" note? I appreciate Phoronix trying to deliver videos from conferences, but in these cases it would be more professional to simply remove them. Also, why post videos at all, when all they show (or not show..) is irrelevant? Delivering mp3/ogg of the speeches would make more sense.
