I regret to inform you, that I think you are confusing your technologies.
Youtube, myspace and others are NOT done in flash. They do use flash componets (actually the FLV player, which isnt really flash persay) but their underlying framework is most certainly not flash. If you are speaking about looking for specific components
to perform the same actions. You can embed Windows Media player - and in the future in .NET 3.0 and XAML you can embed video player objects directly into your pages.
Secondly, Windows does have a product that operates as efficently as flash...it's called Flash, which is primarly a windows based (though it is cross platform) product.
Do you need help with something in particular, are you trying to design a page and decide on the best technology. I'd love to help get you started if you can refine your question a little.
take a look at silverlight. it's still in beta.
Microsoft have addressed this with the release of Silverlight
Have a look :)
