YouTube now defaults to HTML5 <video>

Given the progress we've made with HTML5 <video>, we’re now defaulting to the HTML5 player on the web. We're also deprecating the "old style" of Flash <object> embeds and our Flash API. We encourage all embedders to use the <iframe> API, which can intelligently use whichever technology the client supports.

These advancements have benefitted not just YouTube’s community, but the entire industry. Other content providers like Netflix and Vimeo, as well as companies like Microsoft and Apple have embraced HTML5 and been key contributors to its success.

P.S.
FireFox spell tool does not understand word embedders and I have 'IFRAMEz bloked' too.

I thought this had happened a couple of years ago. Interesting.
