agreed though H264 makes beautiful video and sound in relatively small packages and that's why users everywhere on the planet seem to like it. it blows XVID away for example. So, when Google says 'no' to H264 it might not go the way they want it to. They can try of course.

1. Removing H.264 Jan 12, 2011, 08:09 eRe4s3r
Is a good thing - Google is pushing webm which is a open license - no licensing fees, nothing. H.264 however is a legal minefield.

Flash adds webm support soon, and Firefox can do it anyway. This means the Big3 (google/Flash(youtube)/firefox) will soon support webm completely and no longer support h.264 streams.

This leaves just Apple /and microsoft\ as h.264 supporter now and nobody cares about Apple users anyway
