Good overview by Ryan Paul on the H.264 vs. Ogg Theora standoff between the major modern browser makers. With regard to Apple’s refusal to support Ogg Theora, though, I think he underplays the importance to Apple of H.264-decoding chipsets. That’s how iPhones and iPods get such long battery life for video playback. There are no such chipsets for Ogg Theora.
