Look Ma! No Flash!

Dailymotion is excited to launch a new R&D platform dedicated to open video formats and web standards: openvideo.dailymotion.com. You don’t need the Adobe Flash plugin to watch videos on this platform – the only requirement is the latest version of Firefox, 3.5 beta, available here.

No plugins? No Flash?

Nope – for all content from Motionmakers and Official Users we are using the new HTML < video > tag, supported by Firefox 3.5, to display the video, and not any proprietary technology.

Sounds like a good thing to me.  Having literally hundreds, if not thousands, of hours of video floating around from various conferences and presentations it will be very nice to able to have a single tag to display it.
