    initial v1  
    1111> Explaining video encoding to users is frightening to me. :) I'm wondering if we can say it supports `.mp4` and that's it.

    13 Not sure what's best here either. Using Flash for a video player seems outdated. On the other hand that means we will be supporting only a particular video format. Then should have nice help/explanations that only one video format can be uploaded for use in the headers. That implies the users will have to be able to convert videos they've shot, etc.

    1515Agree that if we can get "skinless" MediaElement.js, we should try it. However relying on YouTube or Vimeo seems bad as they can change the way they handle requests at any time, and "break" every site that uses this. The only possible integration with an external service seems to be with VideoPress as we can make sure this use is supported there (but that is probably a plugin material).
