I honestly can't see Flash being replaced in the next 12 months when the alternative for one of Flash's functions (i.e. the video) hasn't even been decided on yet.
In any case I've bookmarked this thread for a 12 month follow up
Also, test results using Chrome on a Win7 box showed around 30% CPU at full screen for the mp4 vs 20% full screen for a 720p video in Flash. Also the full screen resize on the mp4 looks pathetic.
However that is in no way
representative of the video content itself. I got 5% CPU usage and a perfect upscale using a stand-alone player. I think Google just need to put a bit more effort into their HTML 5 player.
