Note that this means the (admittedly very small) market section of
people who don't have Flash then have no way to view your file unless
you also offer it as a download - which is why I prefer google video to
youtube.  Linux on AMD64 has no Flash, unless you want to install a
32-bit version of various libs and browsers.

At least YouTube and Google Video both seem to work okay in the older
versions of Flash that are available to Linux (7) and Mac (8, I think)
rather than requiring the Windows version (9) like some websites do.
