Comment (by Slobajossi):

 I'll use the html editor and I personally will not have problems with
 embedding the code, but I asked this because of the users that only use
 the visual editor and especially new-comers to WP.

 If you search the forum with "video 3.1" you'll notice few threads on this
 subject, and obviously oEmbed will do the job for the most folks. But
 still this creates an obstacle for those wishing to embed the internal swf
 or flv link from own server. There can be various reasons for using own
 server instead of YouTube or Vimeo, like one user stated, he needs it for
 training material.

 Anyway, thank you both, scribu and filosofo, on your time.
