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.

The codecs provided by Fluendo give Linux users a legal option. I'll likely buy it.

However, I feel this can spell disaster for Firefox. Firefox cannot bundle the H.264 MPEG4 codec inside the browser due to patents but also because the GPL license.
