My experience is the exact opposite: with HTML5 videos, I just
"right-click => Save Video as..." and it's done, whereas with Flash I am
not offered any option to save the video.
[ Using Gnash, indeed, there's a configuration variable about where to
save the viewed videos, but it's not nearly as convenient, and Gnash
fails more often than it works, for me. ]
