OMG no no no

Worse app on the internet security wise (flash) + P2P (so advertisers don't even have to use bandwidth to annoy us, plus will add even more security holes to flash) = EPIC fail, OMG come on Google open source that damn codec so we can get the HTML 5 ball rolling and can finally give the finger to the worse major software company in the industry (Adobe blows and sucks at the same time).
