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.

Member since:

people will notice when they can no longer play the vids. This is particularly true on 'alternative' OS where the browsers might not be updated to support the new format.

Ok, I know its a small minority, but its annoying none the less.
