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.

Go to youtube. You see that crappy quality Flash video plying, guess what it was encoded in? Yeah, that'd be h.264.

Flash is not h.264 sunshine. What the f--k are you talking about? It has no relevance to HTML5 distribution of internet video whatsoever. The end result is still Flash encoded.
