"I first blogged about webm the day Google released it. It has
taken some time but now I have full support for webm in my
preferred Linux desktop distro (Fedora 13). I've been doing some
testing and I have to say I'm impressed.
"Why even care about webm? Because I prefer to use royalty-free
file formats that are based on open standards and free / open
source software. Any other questions? :)
"I'll cover both webm playback and encoding.
"As you may recall, several of the web browser makers also
announced upcoming webm playback support in their next major
releases. So far as I know, Opera is the only browser vendor thus
far that has released a production version that includes webm
support (Opera 10.6). Firefox and Chrome do offer webm support in
their beta releases."
