Google "Google has released a preview WebM filter for Windows Vista and Windows 7. When installed, the filter will allow Windows programs - including Windows Media Player, Windows Media Center, and perhaps most importantly of all, Internet Explorer 9 - to play back WebM-encoded video." This is simply a Media Foundation codec - not a browser plugin.

Does this add Vorbis in Ogg support?

Does this plugin allow IE (or any other app) to play Ogg Vorbis audio files? It would be handy for HTML5 audio to have a standard format too.

Obviously it needs to decode Vorbis for WebM to work, but have they included Ogg support and any other bits necessary for standard Vorbis audio files to function?
