Internet sensation Chatroulette uses Flash Player 10's peer-to-peer ability and Wowza Media Server to power its random, anonymous video chatting. From international newspapers to television shows, plenty has been said about what goes on on Chatroulette —some of which is funny, some of which is bizarre, and some of which is, well, perverted. But what about the technology behind the site, which allows anyone with a webcam to randomly and anonymously interact with a never-ending series of people?

The recent introduction of Apple's iPad has re-opened discussion around Flash and Flash support, or rather, Apple devices' lack thereof. While this discussion brings to light the conflict between the two corporate agendas of Adobe and Apple, it isn't really about Flash or a methodology that Apple picked for video delivery. What it does begin to lay out, however, is a much larger discussion about online video. The discussion widens even further as supporters of alternative technologies and approaches like Silverlight, HTML5, and others begin to chime in with their thoughts on the current and future states of online video.
