Since H264 cannot be installed legally on Linux in the U.S. (and other likely soon-to-be-participating nations)

That's not true, you can install any codec you want in Linux. Linux users at the least will have Chrome which will have an H.264 decoder.


You can also buy a licensed codec from Fluendo, which will work in anything that uses gstreamer. They support h.264 in addition to all the others.

Of course, that might not be an option for some people, but someone will figure all this stuff out.
