Multimedia, AV Are you guys sick of the H264 debate already? Yes? Too bad, because we've got more. Microsoft's decision late last week to restrict Internet Explorer 9 to H264 was met with a rather immense amount of criticism, so the company decided to publish a new blog post responding to some of that criticism. While Microsoft makes a few good points, the overall feeling is still that of 'fear, uncertainty, and doubt'.

...fighting the good fight.
pretty much all other tech sites seem happy with H.264 as the html5 video codec, regardless of the mess of a lock-in it represents on content production.

Yes, we are on a codec wars, and i am on your side, so keep an fighting ;-)

Seriously, my opinion is, that anyone on this site watch at elast one video a day. It is a really important topic, not just because everyone ist somehow involved. So im not going to get tired of articles like these.

But, i think, we will lose this war...

Um, a good fight would be to actually try to abolish software patents altogether. Then everyone could use AVC for free.
