yes, for german lang speakers there is some more info here:


this blog quotes a short statement of tagesschau

"Wir befinden uns zur Zeit noch in der Testphase, so gibt es bislang
noch keinen HTML5-Player für Ogg/Theora auf unserer Seite und mit der
Encoding-Performance sind wir auch noch nicht zufrieden. Mittelfristig
wollen wir jedoch das Ogg/Theora-Angebot ausweiten. "

very rough translation:

"We are currently in a test phase, so far there is no HTML5 player for
Ogg/Theora on our site and we are still not satisfied with the encoding
performance. However we want to extend our support for Ogg/Theora in
the future."
