So I've been putting up videos of our new baby on my website
(on a colocated host with tons of free disk that allows gobs of bandwidth),
seems okay to me.

but haven't liked that I'm merely throwing up "<a href>" links to the AVI
files I pull off of my digital camera.
how come?

These days, websites often have videos embedded as Flash objects from
sites like YouTube (mostly) and Google Video (far less often).
what's good about that? (serious question)

I'd rather
not have to upload my videos to one of these services, and embed their junk
on my site, when I've got the space to do it.

After two short Google searches, I found this article:
"Video and Audio Streaming with Flash and Open Source Tools"
Sounds perfect! Hopefully I'll have some time to look into it and get it
going on my baby photos/video pages. :)
I wish i understood why it's worth the trouble--how come
putting videos up on a web page isn't good enough?
(serious question--why bother with flash?)
