Internet & Networking Ever since it became clear that Google was not going to push WebM as hard as they should have, the day would come that Mozilla would be forced to abandon its ideals because the large technology companies don't care about an open, unencumbered web. No decision has been made just yet, but Mozilla is taking its first strides to adding support for the native H.264 codecs installed on users' mobile systems. See it as a thank you to Mozilla for all they've done for the web.

This "devices only do baseline" thing is outdated.


Not entirely, like e.g. my 10-inch tablet can do high-profile up-to 720p, but at 1080p it can only handle baseline. NVIDIA really screwed up there with Tegra2.

But yes, almost all devices these days can handle high-profile 720p, and most of them can even do 1080p high-profile.
