FYI, Anne van Kesteren (he's an Opera developer) has written an update
about the state of the HTML5 <video> element in browsers and big


Two bits from the post:

  1) the YouTube demo uses the H.264 codec, but I guess this will
change if they want compatibility with Firefox 3.5;

  2) Chrome uses FFmpeg for the decoding; can this cause bugs in the
decoding of Ogg/Theora+Vorbis videos?
