Why not Flash?

Adobe Flash is a non-free standard. The most known and used implementation is Adobe's non-free Flash Player which is, unfortunately, used by many people even on the top of free systems like GNU/Linux. There is a free implementation called Gnash, but it doesn't implement the recent versions of Flash and that's why some popular Flash-based websites don't work well with it.

Flash isn't necessary for modern web designs. Free standard can be used to get great results without being locked-in because of some non-free one-vendor technologies.

Instead of using Flash videos, we encourage people to use HTML5 <video> tag with the free Theora video format.
