Google The revolution has begun! Web video will be freed from the shackles of the MPEG-LA and the dreaded claws of patents and incomprehensible licenses! Sorry, I got a little carried away there. Anywho, YouTube has announced all new videos uploaded to the site will be transcoded into WebM, and that the most important part of the site's catalogue is already available in WebM.

Why would they *not* use their own codec...? It's not really a surprise. That they use their own technology, that happens all the time - but it in no way means anything really. Not really. It's a step in a specific direction, but what counts is when the "flood" begins and every other site moves to WebM.
