Has anyone else noticed the new Firefox 40 defaults to HTML5 on sites like Youtube, even where flashplayer is installed.

This is a MUCH better way of pushing flash towards extinction than simply disabling flash by default.

That's the way it should be.

Though, I have to say, I'm not overly enthusiastic about YouTube's new player.  It automatically decides what your system can handle and will only give you video options at a certain resolution with HTML5. (not the case with Flash)  I was intentionally testing HD playback on my laptop yesterday for a reply in another thread, and I wanted to see how well it did on actual HD, not whatever they thought it would run. (I knew it would play like crap, I just wanted to see how bad it would be)

Hello PCNetSpec,

How were you able to determine this?  I don't see HTML5 in Page Info, or I don't know where to look to find it.

Right-click on the playing video .. you'll see an "About the HTML5 Player" option (along with other options)
