That isnt a great idea, for people with computers/internet that cant handle the burden of flash this would slow them down to a crawl, if you have the power to view a youtube video well then you have the power to click a link. Just my humble opinion

I believe you may encounter a slowdown if you publish several clips on one page (let's say, starting with 4-5). But an advantage on the other hand is not leaving this forum (which is important for us).

Most low end windows machines would freeze with just the presense of flash, let alone a video trying to buffer, I had a 1.4 ghz pc that would just die under the presense of flash (even with a 128mb nvidia card) alot of people still use the computer of yesteryear, my main source of income (Self-employed) is repair and programming of computers/servers,

of course it was just a friendly suggestion my dually 3.0ghz has no complaints in his corner hehehe
