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.

Silverlight is capable of playing any media for which you provide a codec (there's apparntly a Vorbis codec in Moonlight's repository, and a Theora codec was shown by another developer not long ago). This would be a better fallback mechanism than relying on the user to install a DShow or MF codec. Silverlight will simply load your codec, then play your media.
