Alternative to Flash


Is there an alternative to using Flash in such things as YouTube and BBC news website? I think most of the problems I've had in the past with Fedora and Mandriva have been with Flash and it looks like I might have the same problem with Ubuntu.

There are a number of possible alternatives:

1) There exist plugins or greasemonkey scripts that can let you download the videos.

2) There's gnash, which works well with youtube and a few other places.

3) There HTML5, which I've only seen work with youtube, but maybe other sites also support it.
