Well it seems to ma that Google made Webm especially for streaming and
I've even read that it should be easier to stream webm than ogg for
various reasons.

But OGG/vp8 wouldn't be supported corretly by all clients. the
"advantage" of webm is that it's supposed to embed always the same
video and audio codec.
