I'll gladly let the photographic video formats go. Either FLV is just a different wrapper for e.g. H.26x, or it is inferior to more recent standards.

But I surely loved the SWF part of it - the animations! Roughly fifteen years ago was the peak of a wave of some great animation, many of them really funny (remember "Dear P*nis"? And the SWF version of bubble wrap), some crazy (I had to pick up "Falling girl", haven't watched it for years), and some were great pedagogical tools, e.g. for showing how different peoples have had control over which areas of the Middle East through history, or a really great illustration of sizes related to each other, spanning 61 orders of magnitude, from strings (of string theory) to the entire known universe...

It is a pity that I didn't save more of those animations. They were great.
