Multimedia, AV On my mark... Get set... Start not caring! Adobe has announced it plans to discontinue the stand-alone Flash Player for Linux, instead focussing all its effort on the version available through the Pepper API - which, besides Chrome, no one else is going to support.

I think I heard something about YouTube starting some HTML5 video testing a while back--how has that been going? Is it anywhere near stable yet? I'm just getting sick of being stuck with Flash for Web video on my primary computing platform--the desktop--when so many sites seem to at least providing the option for mobile platforms like Android.
