Internet Explorer I am almost flabbergasted by the spin and blunt-face upon which this news is delivered. We were just discussing the pot calling the kettle black with Apple / Adobe and now Microsoft have also come out in favour of a closed video format for an open web--IE9's HTML5 video support will allow H264 only. Update Now that the initial shock is over, I've rewritten the article to actually represent news rather than something on Twitter.

Amazing how I have no problems using flip4mac with QuickTime X


That’s because QuickTime Player the app is reverting to the QuickTime 7 media API so as to use the codec plugin. QuickTime X (the API) does not support plugins. The UI switches between the two backends as appropriate.
