Perhaps not directly, or by itself even.. but a combination of HTML5's new <video> tags, high performance Javascript engines, and perhaps SVG graphics.

All of these open technologies have the potential to eliminate Flash altogether, and.. many common "Video" sites are already preparing to support this.

It's still early, and I probably won't be more interested in streaming online videos.. but at least I'll have the option of doing so if I choose.
