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 LWN.net 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.

The iPhone certainly has the power to decode Ogg Vorbis. I use a music streaming service called Spotify on my Mac and iPhone and it uses Ogg Vorbis as its audio format (probably due to the lack of licensing fees).
