Given the circumstances, anyone who doesn't insist on conflating openness with freeness would have to admit that h.264 was, and likely remains, more open.


WebM: unencumbered by patents, free, Free, open source, can be implemented by anyone - wherever, whenever, however.

H264: none of the above, but instead of being developed by a single company, it was developed by a few big shots.

And somehow, H264 is more open?
