Google The revolution has begun! Web video will be freed from the shackles of the MPEG-LA and the dreaded claws of patents and incomprehensible licenses! Sorry, I got a little carried away there. Anywho, YouTube has announced all new videos uploaded to the site will be transcoded into WebM, and that the most important part of the site's catalogue is already available in WebM.

Google should buy vimeo and a couple of the other more popular sites and do the same as well ;)

If youtube do it, then chances are the rest will follow. Google will have WebM all over the internet without having to pay a cent.
