Quicktime Multimedia Authoring - Nearly Dead?

Unfortunately, Flash is not available for Palm OS, so all those video sites 
are unavailable to me when the closest "PC" is my Treo 700p. My phone 
handles QuickTime, MPEG and AVI/WMV just great. I still get a kick using Orb 
to tune into my Windows Media Center PC at home and watch live digital cable 
TV from anywhere.

And of course, Flash is not natively supported in Rev. The altBrowser plugin 
is great... but on Windows, I don't think you can eliminate the border 
around embedded web pages. So that precludes a more "integrated" 
look-and-feel where you could incorporate tiny Flash movies as buttons, etc.
