A few years ago you could say that, effectively, Flash was everywhere. It made total sense for sites like YouTube and Hulu to go with Flash.
Flash is no longer ubiquitous. There’s a big difference between “everywhere” and “almost everywhere”.
Whenever I encounter the blue box, I usually figure it wasn’t really worth seeing anyway. Adobe’s going to lose this battle.
Of course, my recent posts are full of YouTube and Vimeo Flash videos, but both services have started offering HTML5 versions on their sites. It’s only a matter of time.
