Instead of hosting videos in the site itself, why not made them as just
files. The user can download the video file [using wget, no need to open
the browser itself, there by avoiding more of flashing ads and saving
bandwidth ] , and play it in their own/favorite players. No need to worry
about flash and all. The user also , no need to install any plug-ins to
download the video, in case they want. And they can watch anywhere, anytime
with out worrying about the Internet availability.
