Looks like the solution will be to use some open source technology mixed with a new tag to make embedding video in web pages easier.

Opera and Mozilla officials say the changes to their browsers will offer a new level of ease for Web developers using open-source tools to embed and stream their video. If video encoded in Ogg Theora plays directly in the browser, everyday Internet surfers would not have the burden of downloading extra plug-ins for their browser to play the video.

A lot of other good points are made in this PC World article on the topic. We don’t need a plugin to view images – why should we need one to watch video?
