Mozilla, HTML5 and H.264


Robert O’Callahan, Mozilla Hacker, wrote an interesting article about why he believes Mozilla should not support the H.264 format.

Other issues aside, I don’t understand why supporting a proprietary Flash plugin from a single vendor is better than opening support for a standardized (albeit similarly patent-encumbered) video format with open-source implementations.
