Summary:
By shipping HTML5 <video> and <audio> with royalty free open source formats in Firefox we hope to make these formats ubiquitous through common usage. Royalty free open source formats will allow all web-browser makers to enable native video and audio playback on all platforms, devices, and environments, without restrictions. They will allow all open source products to embed native video and audio playback without fear. They will allow web authors to use audio and video freely in their websites without worrying about whether a particular platform has a particular version of a particular plug-in installed. As an end-user we soon won’t have to worry about whether we can watch video content from a particular website on our new phone, tablet, or PC because all systems can support open video standards. Perhaps I’ll be able to watch the 2010 Olympics on my mobile phone. True ubiquitous access to content. This is the world we want.
