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.

XP will only decrease over time, so it is not a valid reason to push a video format going forward. You have to face the reality that H.264 is already a defacto standard for quality video in just about every arena (web and non-web).
