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.

Technically, it's still a standard for video encoding/decoding. As in, gone through the ITU standardisation process, such that it was given the name H.264.

Yes, it's not "the standard for video on the web". But it's still a standard.

Just like OOXML is a standard for office documents.
