Default HTML5 video, H.264 codec and Firefox

HTML5 video and codecs

Recently, Vimeo and YouTube announced that they were moving to support the HTML5 video tag, as DailyMotion did last summer. This is an important step in making video a first-class citizen of the modern web, and that is great news. Unlike DailyMotion, however, Vimeo and YouTube chose to rely on the patented H.264 video encoding, rather than an unencumbered encoding like Ogg Theora. This means that the <video> pages on those sites will not work with Firefox.
Read the reasons why Firefox will not license H.264, on the blog from Mike Shaver, Mozilla's vice president of engineering.
