Tech Crunch: "Just when the H.264 video codec is starting to take over a large portion of new Web videos, along comes Google to shake things up again. Today, along with Mozilla and Opera, it is launching the WebM Project, an open, royalty-free codec that can run in HTML5 browsers without the need for Flash."
Must we really have *another* video codec? It's becoming a nightmare with all the options out there, and H.264 video codec was just starting to take off. Still, I guess this one will always remain free, although I'm not sure "WebM" is really an appropriate name for a video codec.
