Internet & Networking Despite the recent interest in adopting HTML5's video tag, there is still one major problem: there is no mandated standard video codec for the video tag. The two main contestants are the proprietary and patended h264, and the open and free Theora. In a comment on an article about this problematic situation, LWN reader Trelane posted an email exchange he had with MPEG-LA, which should further cement Theora as the obvious choice.

As usual, Thom puts his vision of the subject.

Here are the real fact corrected...

The two main contestants are the proprietary, patended , industry standart and high quality h264, and the open, free , almost not used and medium quality Theora.

I will now call this way of doing news the "Reality distortion field of Thom".
