How can I capture these moments? By using HTML5 rich media creatives

HTML5 is a universal language for building beautiful, engaging content that can run across desktop, smartphones, and tablets, unlike flash. HTML5 is especially useful for rich media creatives because rendering is done by the browser, so you don't have to rely on third-party plug-ins (such as Flash). HTML5 is a standard for structuring and delivering web content and is constructed as a combination of HTML, JavaScript and CSS assets.

The market is already moving to this standard: as consumers continue to use mobile devices more frequently, publishers are migrating to HTML5 video players and browsers are introducing power saving plugins that prevent Flash ads from working properly.
