    well, it was free so my expectations weren't very high but drawing lines on a page isn't very useful. sprites may decrease the # of HTTP requests but he didn't mention that it could have a negative effect on initial load time, depending on how big the file is. perhaps you could also store the sprite in HTML5s localstorage, that was also not mentioned. i was really looking for a Q&A maybe to see how others were using video w/HTML5.
