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.

Because we’re straight back to 2000 where you had to install various different softwares just to play video and not all softwares were available on all platforms. Before it was media players, today it’ll be browsers.

How does Google pushing VP8 help iPhone users? Google will still need to provide and pay up for H264 come 2016 if they want to be in that market.

It’s a mess.
