Internet & Networking Despite the recent interest in adopting HTML5's video tag, there is still one major problem: there is no mandated standard video codec for the video tag. The two main contestants are the proprietary and patended h264, and the open and free Theora. In a comment on an article about this problematic situation, LWN reader Trelane posted an email exchange he had with MPEG-LA, which should further cement Theora as the obvious choice.

Will you ever stop talking crap about GStreamer? d'oh!

It is the same typ of misunderstanding and chaos as OSS HAL, PulseAudio etc. Multitude of crap instead of two GOOD things.

GStreamer is plain EVIL.
