While we are trying to rid the world of IE6

by Volker Weber

On the Windows blog:

In its HTML5 support, IE9 will support playback of H.264 video as well as VP8 video when the user has installed a VP8 codec on Windows.

So, if you bring the codec, IE9 will use it. That does not mean, Microsoft is backing WebM or VP8.

Next up: Apple.


Who makes VP8 decoding silicon again?
Or are we expected to roll our own using a FGPA and put that in our embedded devices?

That should obviously be FPGA - please pardon the dyslexia.

Broadcoms VideoCore will support WebM in autumn.

WebM is not a perfect fit, but the current ideas for H264 licensing are much worse.
