Internet & Networking Microsoft did two things today. First, it released an H.264 plugin for HTML5 video for Google's Chrome web browser which makes use of Media Foundation. The usefulness of this plugin is limited, however, since it's only for Windows 7 users. Much more interesting is that Microsoft has opened the door to out-of-the-box WebM/VP8 support in Internet Explorer 9.

It's not a problem of what only you need. It's a problem for developers, who can't use one format to deliver to all users (WebM), and because of that need to clutter servers with a whole bunch of duplicate options. So Apple is a culprit for causing this problem.
