you see those videos that pop up a little ad rectangle ? those are the only ones that will require flash, if you do the embed or tv# trick you can watch them just fine...
What I find presposterous is that in internet explorer 10 youtube will play everything without need for tricks or edits.
more people should refuse to use flash, otherwise html5 and mp4 that should already be in use everywhere will never starts gaining ground.
similar question last September, and your post answers it. Thanks.
it's when you open a video that says " I can't play without flash"
like this one:
and we change the url into:
and it plays without flash
also you can use external applications like minitube...
there are tricks to speed up youtube streaming and tricks that germans and the use to see music videos (they are banned in germany) and documentaries etc...
again what annoys me is that no such tricks are needed in windows where you simplyc an watch all videos without flash and without having to do little tricks

by that mindset we could all have just stayed with windows since it sort of 'just works' and never demand better technologies...
I can see that you have no option but to use flash with bbc/cbs/etc... but if instead of complaining about adobe flash's security bugs/bad support/glitches people just refused to use it those sites would have no option but to switch to html5.
As much as I don't like apple, one thing they got right; flash needs to die
Just some observations...
I messed around last night with different browsers, opting in to the 'HTML 5 trial' and disabling Flash.
Ubuntu 13.04 x64; Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera
Win8 Pro x64; Firefox (Nightly), Google Chrome, IE10
Oddly enough, some videos wouldn't play without Flash in YouTube under Ubuntu /w Firefox & Opera. Whereas the same videos were fine with Google Chrome.
The kicker is in Win8, all browsers worked with the videos I tested on YouTube (HTML 5). Obviously this is inconclusive as I couldn't test every YouTube video -- lol! Nonetheless, interesting results so far.
