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.

RE[3]: It's comparable to MP3

Not install by default, but the first time you attempt to play an mp3 file it will gladly install it for you.

Not really the point though. You are not free to implement mp3 in your software or device.
