A few of the online video sites have implemented it already, but at least 
on my old laptop, it's even more CPU-intensive than Flash for video.  For 
audio (oggs) it seems fine, though.

I haven't really gone any further than the social networking sites and a 
directory full of mp3s to share my music, but Facebook's little embedded 
flash music player seems to work fine.  When my friends play something I 
put up, it just buffers and plays the song from whatever url I put in.  I 
have the Flashblock extension turned on in Firefox, so I only see the Flash 
applets I know I want to see.
