    Evening Mikrot;
    Well, the choice between HTML5 and Flash is only present when playing the video (before playing you just see a "dummy" player in HTML+CSS+JS).

    In order to, play the video in HTML5 instead of Flash (and this is in the FAQ if I'm not mistaking), your browser must support the html5-video and have one of the codecs used by YouTube. But more importantly (as most modern browsers comply to those requirements); you need to be enrolled in YouTube's HTML5 beta program (or not have flash at all). No way around that as far as I know.

    Hope this helps,
