Finally, the Linux Foundation put an option to download the videos encoded with Ogg Theora... underneath the ratings, the page sharing, and the Flash Player embed codes. I was embarrassed for the Plumbers Conference when, for a couple days, the videos strictly required Flash Player to view or some other way to decode Flash Video. Adobe has only an test-version of Flash Player for 64-bit systems and many embedded systems have no Flash Player available, so Flash Video seems to be a strange choice to convey information to other kernel developers.
Even with links to download videos encoded with Ogg Theora, I still wish there was a more focused effort by the Linux Foundation to use open standards, especially as they are the self-proclaimed "spokesperson for Linux". HTML5 Video is a well published standard, with commonly known failbacks options even including a Flash Video failback. Even the file extension of the download links show a lack of interest of use open standards, the Xiph.org Foundation has been encouraging the use of *.OGV file extensions for Ogg files containing video.
I suppose it is "looking a gift-horse in the mouth" because it is advantageous to have anyone fund the distribution of these presentations, but I would expect more than the typical Flash Video norm from an organization that defines itself as resolving same compatibility issues.
