How can I watch videos in articles on Android?

Maybe I'm crazy, but swear I remembered being able to watch videos on The Verge without having flash player some time ago. I do a lot of my browsing using Chrome for Android, and videos (including 90 On the Verge) always complain about flash being missing.

Is there really no HTML5 video player on the site? I can't even install a different browser and flash any more now that flash was removed from Google Play. This is frustrating.
