Firefox Gets HTML 5 Video Update
While it's admirable that Mozilla is sticking to its guns for a long-term vision, those wanting to use Firefox H.264 could be disappointed – if it wasn't for Microsoft.
The future video standards in the web, particularly in HTML 5, are not totally united. Though many browsers supports H.264, it is not used by Mozilla due to its potential patent fees. Simply put, Mozilla Firefox does not support what could be the most popular form of HTML 5 video. This can mean disappointment among potential users of Mozilla Firefox H.264. Good thing there is Microsoft. Microsoft surprisingly created a plug-in for Firefox that allows H.264 playback on Windows 7 hardware. If you’re a user of Windows 7 that comes with Firefox 3.6 or the latest you can get the plug-in via this download.View Article Source »
