Can someone explain to me the basic advances / advantages of HTML5 over the existing versions? Should I change over?

You don't have to "change over". HTML5 is not replacing HTML4/XHTML1, it's extending it in several ways.
Go ahead and learn about it, because eventually you may want to build something that takes advantage of some of the new stuff.
html5doctor.com/ is a good site to read through.
diveintohtml5.org is a good walk-through, from history to now.
See the huge ginormous red warning at the bottom of this page: HTML5

I can tell you the best thing I observed when HTML moved from v4 to v5, and it is implementation of video tag !
Now you can embed a video just by using a simple tag called, video !
And that will reduce most of the users who share video on there site problem..

That is a nice feature. But your statement should really read:
Now you will be able to embed a video just by using a simple tag called video!

The main advantage of HTML5 is that the functionality is built into the browser. so you can upgrade it. Thanks.
