Is HTML5 video better than Flash video?

What do you mean by "better"? It's completely subjective.

Sorry I should have been more clear in the question:
Better in
:: User Experience (This also could subjective in a broader sense - but what I mean is the usability or easy of use)
:: Browser rendering (Clarity and quality of the rendering)
:: Easy implemenation
:: Format support
etc..

The lion's share of visits are increasingly coming from mobile platforms, where Flash either isn't supported or works poorly. Even Adobe has given up hope on making Flash a viable future platform for video in the mobile space.

The writing is on the wall.
