I couldn't play these without installing non-free software and I can
not play them at all on the non-x86 platform I'm using at the moment,
because the proprietary software is not provided except for x86.  ...
in fact,  nothing at all is displaying on that page, so I can't figure
out how to download the files (if they are downloadable at all)

It appears that the videos are embedded by embedding flash movies
provided by a non-mediawiki kaltura server at kaltura.com and that the
kaltura extension still works just like the youtube embedding
extension.   At least when embedding youtube there are well known ways
of downloading the files.
