Oh yea! It's a millipede, I found an ID for it.

Yea, sorry. It's the best I could get at the time because it's legs were moving so fast. It was definitely a centipede; it was flat and had one pair per segment. I was just wondering what type exactly.

I can't tell if I see one pair of legs per body segment or two. It's rather blurry. If it's just one, then yes it's a centipede. If there are two pairs, then it's a millipede. Frequently confused.
