So probably a long time debatable subject, but in the end which would most agree is the better runner for video playback. Advantages/disadvantages to either side? I know HTML doesn't have to be used with plugins, and it's better cross platform. But are there any significant advantages to the end user on a desktop setup performance and stability wise? I will point out YouTube playback for me has been running better using the optional HTNL5 video player (forced in Chrome).
Just curious to see some view points on the matter
