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.

WTF are you talking about? Go to youtube. You see that crappy quality Flash video plying, guess what it was encoded in? Yeah, that'd be h.264. All this crap about h.264 but most internet video regardless of what container it uses, encode their video in h.264 because of the benefits of the format.


Neither Flash nor h264 is a web satndard.
