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.

I agree. But this is a clear instance of a company using its monopoly power to push a codec that isn't as good as the already accepted standard. Hmmm....


When did 'we' accept that standard? I must have missed that vote. Hasn't this whole debate of late been because alot of people does not accept h.264 to be the web standard?
