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.

Yes, you can argue that OpenSource is not necessarily open, and you're right.


No, you cannot read the actual license terms for WebM and argue that. Not if you want to retain any logic at all.

Yes, Google could change their policies and start changing for the worse


No, Google cannot do that ... what part of "perpetual, no-charge, royalty-free and irrevocable" did you fail to understand?
