    I agree with cician idea.
    Or Phoronix could simply put both videos. The people that don't have flash player won't see that version, and the people's browsers that doesn't support the html 5 <video> tag, they won't see it.
    Or simple put the video with html 5 <video> and a link to youtube or dailymotion (which supports both) for the flash video.

    Code:
    <video src="whatever"><object data="old crappy flash video"></video>
    This is a no-brainer, honestly.

    Ah! Yes, with Real our lives would be easer, it should replace flash and vorbis/theora in Phoronix, no, wait, in all the web!

    As far as I see it, IE doesn't work with ogg/theora.

    Really, they should fix that, or all the people should move to another browser.
