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.

darn... all those thieves on Linux will have to continue stealing the codec. Anyone who claims they do not use x264 is a liar.

x264 is a h264 encoder. I have never encoded any videos with h264 encoding, and I therefore claim that I do not use x264. In fact, I don't have it installed.

Would you like to try again with that comment, and see if you can commit libel against me twice in the one thread?
