Internet & Networking We here at OSNews have taken somewhat of an interest in the new HTML5 video and audio tags, which should - some day - make embedding audio and video material into web pages as easy and straightforward as embedding images, allowing the web to finally remove the shackles of dreadful Flash video. Sadly, the problem with these new tags are the codecs; as it turns out, browser makers have not reached an agreement about what codecs to choose for video, with mostly Apple throwing a spanner in the works, and Microsoft shining in absence.

You know what is really stupid is, it almost seems like now video-tag doesn't have any required codecs, audio-tag won't either. Not even wav or FLAC.

This is really sad, but discussion is still going kind of. So who knows.
