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.

Uh, http://xiph.org/quicktime/

I’ve been ragging on about the QT component being a year out of date, but nethertheless, it exists and you can save-as to OGG in OS X.

Microsoft won’t allow any other codec than H264 so a VP8 directshow component will be useless. Google will have to get users to install ChromeFrame or an ActiveX control.
