Using a Java applet is not a good idea. Java is not well supported in many platforms, and overall does not work well, in my experience.

About Youtube's move, it was funny reading their announcement; they said they were moving in that direction as an answer to the most voted feature "idea", but totally ignored the 'open formats' part of the request they claimed to be responding to.

Hey that's great - it actually works in my browser! As an 'optimist' who has been persevering with gnash for the last year or two, I dont see much video: currently youtube flash doesn't work and youtube html5 h264 doesn't work either. BBC iplayer doesn't work, and most video embedding on random other sites doesn't work either. Sadly sites very rearely provide a nice 'download the video' link anymore (which works just fine). I normally only ever get to see things via get_iplayer, clive, youtube-dl and the like.

So, yes vfe looks good from here.
