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.

Not surprised Thom decided to ignore this information.

I haven't had the time yet to do that story yet. I have a life, you know.

Sheesh.

No problem. I actually didn't expect you to write a full story, but more of a blurb.

Actually, WebM was in the 'stable' release for quiet a while now. I know for certain it is in Chrome 10, which Wikipedia says was released on: 2011-03-08

It'd be pretty easy to say that on OSX, what webkit does doesn't matter, because people can choose anything but Safari and they'll get excellent webM support.

As long as they haven't ported it to iOS, nothing new.

But well... That would be needlessly jerkish.

I wouldn't call it well-known information.

Awesome to know though. It means I can watch the open standards videos using my favorite browser.
