Some clips are forced to show commercials and this does not work in
HTML5 even video can be served in WebM/VP8. yesterday I was working on
a Linux machine with flash player and before EVERY movie I got nasty
commercial, this was awful, I am happy that commercials does not work
in HTML5, Vimeo is somewhat alternative but it use proprietary H.264
on the othe hand. Web multimedia is a mess, but I am happy to see
Flash come to an end :-)

You may want to try out the EMBED solution that I have found some time
