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 entirely true

It is not true that all new uploaded video is encoded in webm.

Go here: http://www.youtube.com/results?uploaded=d&search_query=trailer&sear...

(simly "trailer" search, from today with time sorting).

First result, (about 20 minutes ago), is not encoded using webm. I probably need to wait a bit until it will be encoded using webm. Not very good.
