Internet Explorer I am almost flabbergasted by the spin and blunt-face upon which this news is delivered. We were just discussing the pot calling the kettle black with Apple / Adobe and now Microsoft have also come out in favour of a closed video format for an open web--IE9's HTML5 video support will allow H264 only. Update Now that the initial shock is over, I've rewritten the article to actually represent news rather than something on Twitter.

With IE and Safari supporting only H.264 video, which covers the default browser of the two main OSes, why would anyone provide their content in non-H.264 content?

And if no-one provides their content in non-H.264 versions, how are non-IE/non-Safari users supposed to access it?
