    yeah, get you addicted then charge you to bankruptcy. typical drug pusher operation.

    GIF did exactly the same thing.

    There is latest version of ogg/theora that does better quality video at same bitrate than H.264, why should we be bogged down by a patent encumbered codec and push web backward?

    its exciting if you're not interested in re-re-encoding the entire internet...

    hard to grasp the 'rea' statistics of how many people are using 264 ... but if you could somehow gather the numbers, it'd be mind-blowing.

    so... i think it boils down to, do you want to take whats already out there and been used for years, or do you want to redo all thats been done.

    I see your point and I certainly do appreciate ogg/theora, but i doubt the entire internet is as aware of it, nor using it as much they are h.264 (DVB, iTunes, Blu-Ray... just to name a few major uses already deployed for example... thats just going to be hard to tackle)

    OK. I have been looking around for HTML 5 video support after the 1.4 update, and it does not appear to work, as has been stated here.

    I did, however, find this site:
    “Video For Everybody” Test Page
    Which kind of works on my Sprint Pre after the 1.4 update. The page says is tries to use HTML 5 video, falls back to Quicktime, then falls back to Flash. As I understand it, none of these are supposed to work on the Pre, so why do I have audio and video?

    cause unless you have a sprint airwave cell booster at ur house it will take forever to buffer even a 30sec video...

    NOT "HP webOS"!!!

    youtube application was just awefull.

    I just thought to do this though: I went to youtube.com/html5 and joined the beta right on my phone. Youtube videos in app seem to be amazing now....they seem to be loading so much better without that stupid error.

    can anyone confirm? I might be able to watch youtube videos without worry now!
