Multimedia, AV Are you guys sick of the H264 debate already? Yes? Too bad, because we've got more. Microsoft's decision late last week to restrict Internet Explorer 9 to H264 was met with a rather immense amount of criticism, so the company decided to publish a new blog post responding to some of that criticism. While Microsoft makes a few good points, the overall feeling is still that of 'fear, uncertainty, and doubt'.

Yes, threaten people by posting videos in a format they can't watch. What's the expression "cutting off your nose to spite your face"? If almost no one notices, you'll be fighting a battle and causing yourself to lose it.

Threaten? No, it's a promise, there is no choice involved here. Almost no one will notice? Well, at least everyone running IE9 will notice. I'm sure they are resourceful enough to dig up some tool to watch my vids if they really want to.
