Google The revolution has begun! Web video will be freed from the shackles of the MPEG-LA and the dreaded claws of patents and incomprehensible licenses! Sorry, I got a little carried away there. Anywho, YouTube has announced all new videos uploaded to the site will be transcoded into WebM, and that the most important part of the site's catalogue is already available in WebM.

I have been using the html5 version of youtube for a while now, and I must say, i can't really notice any difference, except for less CPU usage.

There is some difference: Flash is hardware accelerated while Webm is not.

Really?. What is hardware accelerated in flash? video decompression pipeline, scalling? On which operating systems and what hardware?

It is strange, but on my machine webm works much better, so i can watch now HD content, or other much more smoother (fullframerate instead of the slideshow and killing whole computer), and better integrated in to the webpage (including resizing, scrolling issues in flash, keyboard and mouse hijacking by flash).
