If you right-click over a video you can tell from what's offered whether
it is Flash; Flash videos have the word "Flash" mentioned in their menu
(or did last time I did this) and IIRC offer one the chance to run the
Flash Settings dialogue.

What's harder (impossible?) to see is whether the server might have
offered you a Flash video in other circumstances but has chosen to send
you an HTML5 one because it thinks that suits your browser/platform
