YouTube's H.264 and WebM support has gotten considerably better since they started transcoding all content uploaded. However, it's not perfect - the more "obscure" (less viewed) and older you go, the less likely it is that you can get it in one of the two HTML5 friendly formats. On top of that, your browser has to support the available formats. In other words, if the video has only been made available as WebM, you're out of luck if you're using a browser that lacks support (which is none of them if you have Perian installed).

You can test your WebM support here. If you're looking for H.264 support, avoid Firefox (for now) and Opera.
