Why was YouTube ALL HTML5 created?

Today YouTube requires Flash for most of its videos. This discriminates against users who cannot or don't want to install Flash.
I found myself regularly in this situation and the available addons did not have the quality that I was expecting for my daily use of YouTube. So I decided to create this addon from scratch to enably playback of (today) almost all videos on YouTube only with the help of HTML5 and javascript.

Thanks to

  • Raylan Givens for the IE hint
  • Alexander Schlarb for his work to support click_to_play
  • Alex Szczuczko for implementing "pause on start"
