There seems to be no such thing as a hardware product --- amateur or pro --- that supports WebM natively.


I beg to differ.

http://blog.webmproject.org/

Under the heading: "Sixth Generation VP8 Hardware Accelerators Released"

I quote: "The VP8 hardware cores have now been licensed to over 80 chip companies, and both the decoder and encoder are in mass production from a number of partners."

Every single Android device since Android 2.3 Gingerbread supports VP8 & WebM. Every single Android device since Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich supports WebM decoding in hardware.

Android activations now number over 1.3 million per day. There are now over 500 million Android devices (not all of them are Android 2.3 or better, I grant you, but most of them are).

Every new video uploaded to Youtube is encoded to WebM. Over 99% of videos viewed can be viewed as WebM.

Google's entire infrastructure, obviously, supports WebM. If one chooses HTML5/WebM for YouTube, one now effectively suffers no penalty for doing so.

Ubuntu is heading towards 9% of the PC market. Ubuntu supports WebM.

You are a long, long way behind the times.
