If you encode the video clip in h264 instead and put it on a website, you could be up for thousands of dollars in license fees.

Worse: If you encode the video clip in h264 instead and put it on a website and you don't get a license, you could be up for hundreds of thousands in fines and court costs.


I like WebM/VP8. It's software decoder on Linux is less resource intensive than H.264 with same quality.

But I can encode video to H.264 and give a big FFFFFUUUUUU! to MPEG-LA, because I live in a country where software patents are illegal.
