Multimedia, AV There's an incredible amount of momentum behind Google's WebM Project. Opera, Mozilla, and of course Google will all include it in their browsers by default, meaning about 35% of web users will be able to use it with a minimal amount of fuss. On top of that, Microsoft has changed its previously announced plans to make HTML5 video in Internet Explorer 9 H264-only to include VP8 as well. Only Apple's opinion was unclear - until now.

Patents not quality

While people seem to be commenting on the quality aspect of the link that Steve Jobs linked to, this may be missing the bigger menace.

It may be more a veiled threat about patents which the blog suggested that VP8 could potentially infringe.

I would love to see a good quality comparison between the codece though - kind of like the theora "improvements" that monty from Xiph did to show the improvements.
