I see it as being beneficial mostly to the vast majority of web designers who don't actually know HTML and just export stuff directly from DreamWeaver or whatever. Also, I haven't looked at this particular player, but I would hope it has a nicer set of controls than the default HTML5 video container's controls.

Nearly everyone seems to be missing the point to this. It's not something the user installs, it's something that content providers use to provide their video on the server side. This is a GOOD THING - it makes it much easier for websites to transition to HTML5 without alienating users who don't have HTML5-capable browsers.

They did at least give Counter-Strike a passing mention, but the lack of Team Fortress, and even moreso the lack of Threewave CTF seem like major ommissions. Also, that site seems to be optimized for getting as many pageviews as possible. There's no reason that article needed to be split up into 12 slow-loading banner-loaded pages.
