I don't see any reason to even use flash anymore and wouldn't worry about it.

With that said, the quality of the video is not as easy as it would seem.  You have to pay attention to dimension, ratio, bit rate and frame rate.  You need to balance out size/quality vs being able to be streamed on the web.

You are just looking at samples and you should look at the raw video file vs swf file. If you notice they are the same, then there is something in how they are presented on the web.  If they are different when viewing them directly, that is your answer.  They are two completely different files.
