Won't play videos on websites - normal?

Newbie here, this has probably been answered somewhere. Is this a "flash" issue? Workarounds?

Is there a comparison of an IPad to NC somewhere?

Also, is there a glossary of terms somewhere? (Rooting, sideload, etc.)

The update to Android 2.2 will add flash support (Q1).
The workaround for Youtube is to use to mobile version of the site (low quality html video).

I needed youtube, so I rooted. The HD version of youtube works great.

I'm not a power user at all, so I wasn't even going to root. All I wanted was YouTube, Gmail, and maybe a decent calendar and browser. Perhaps the update coming from BN in March will be better, but until then, I am really enjoying my rooted NC.
