VLC supports the playing of Ogg Theora.
Where I live, most people seem to use it.
The only thing is that the VLC browser plug-in is NOT installed by default
(when you install VLC). You have to "check a box" if you want VLC to also
install the browser plug-in.

Ogg Theora supported more
To be clear, I understand that Theora is the video codec,
