Yes and we'd all love to live in a world where unicorns crap jelly beans, all the southern states have gay marriage and I have a boyfriend but unfortunately we live in reality and what we have is the best of the worse. There is a reason why h264/AAC is chosen and all the conspiracy theories in the world won't change the fact that it is chosen because it is best fit for the mixture of narrow and wide band connections that exist - from broadband mobile through to cable internet, from ADSL2+ to fibre optic.

Secondly, I provided a link to the WebM plugin for Media Foundation which would simply be an extra download for someone wanting to use said format. When it comes to Apple, why should they step out of what is pretty much an industry standard? pretty much all the large companies have agreed on it so why go against the grain? what's in it for them?
