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 LWN.net 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.

Because we all know the joy of having to battle a multi-billion dollar industry giant before court for years to come as a regular user independent of the outcome. ;)

I don't know about your jurisdiction, but here in Germany court cases have to be accepted first. Such a case wouldn't even be accepted here.
