    It's official.

    H.264 is going to be part of the MPEG-4 standard.

    Enjoy.

    Cool. Hope Apple gives us an update fast... and I'm also hoping Microsoft doesn't decide to jump onto the MPEG-4 wagon now...

    I hope they do...

    ...that way we'd have one open standard being used by both major operating systems. Add that to Office 11 using XML for its file format, and you suddenly get a lot more choice in which programs you use.
