Changing the finish date of the taks, because problems occured while writing the code.

Notes:
The activation button for the HTML5 player in Dailymotion could be used in Epiphany when the Greasemonkey extension is turned off.

Vimeo serves HTML5 player when no flahs plugin is installed.

To make the HTML5 switch possible in Linterna Magica, the following changes are needed.

Change the "priority" config option, so it could take multiple values. For example "html5, self, plugin".
Add a function to search for video tag in the parent node of the replacement object tag.
Make the assumption that the HTML5 player (controls and video tag) is in the previous sibling of the replacement object. This is the case with YouTube, where a div element holds all HTML5 data. Then use the same logic as for flash plugin.

From all the sites in the first post, now only YouTube provides a HTML5 player.

Blip.tv+ provides a page to switch to HTML5, but it has only an explanation that their HTML5 is buggy and in beta state. It is not obvious how to switch it on.

Daylimotion has a dedicated page to switch the HTML5 player, but the button that should turn it on runs javascript:void(0) function.

Can't find the HTML5 switch page for Vimeo.

If a site has HTML5 player there should be a button to switch between it and Linterna Mágica, like it is done for Gnash.

Few such sites are:

  • YouTube
  • Blip.tv
  • Dailymotion
  • Vimeo

The use cookies to set the HTML5 player on/off.
