I realised suddenly that struggling with the media controls is going to go away because, unlike when I first logged in using 2.0 to my own parcel with both video and audio playing automatically and cacophonously and no obvious way to turn them off quickly and individually, no one will have both on in the future. There won't be a point when you can fling a film onto a prim.
I dunno if streaming parcel-based vids will still be used for theatre-type showings, or if that will just go away entirely. The parcel-based all-at-once-with-no-address-bars vids are useful for things like my video domes, but I'm sure even that can be done with web-on-a-prim. I haven't played around with it much aside from, like everyone else, setting up a stream (someone asked a ustream question on the blogorums, so I just went and threw a stream from Aditi back into Aditi - someone is ALWAYS asking ustream questions - I don't get it since it's about as simple as it could possibly be. note: Enj, that's what I used to stream your gallery opening that time ages ago).
