H.264 FTW!

YouTube is already serving H.264 to iPhones and Apple TV; Adobe is rolling H.264 support into the next version of Flash; both high-def DVD standards can use H.264; and now DivX has bought MainConcept, an H.264 codec developer.

Two thoughts:

  1. Can we now stop with the ‘DivX is just as good’ arguments?

  2. Microsoft are the only vendor not doing H.264 (RealPlayer will handle it, if anyone still cares)

Give it another year, and the main delivery method for video will be H.264.

Oh, happy, happy day.
