I tried playing DailyMotion videos on the XO, but the flash player makes
Gnash choke.

So I tried it on my computer, without the adobe flash plugin installed:
it attempts to start an HTML5 player, but it fails immediately with
"Media Not Supported" on Firefox 7 and no explanation on Chromium 15.
Moreover, there's no discoverable way to download the video file
(probably it's so by design).

Even if these issues were fixed, I still see some value in playing
videos directly from our wiki, alongside with images and text, to create
lesson plans for example.
