Mozilla & Gecko clones This week, both YouTube and Vimeo opened up beta offerings using HTML5 video instead of Flash to bring video content to users. Both of them chose to use the h264 codec, which meant that only Safari and Chrome can play these videos, since firefox doesn't license the h264 codec. Mike Shaver, Mozilla's vice president of engineering, explained on his blog why Mozilla doesn't license the h264 codec.

I like to film and try to get the most out of my camera, but if i have to decide between an acclaimed better quality or a free internet I'm always gonna choose the free internet

Of course there are many others who are willing to pay for an improved experience. In fact there are those whose goal is not to spend as little as possible but to enjoy life to the fullest.
