By the way, the story upfront is a little misleading, as it is also intended to take out H.264 as it is a licensed product. Since that is part of HTML5 along with OGG Theora, it means more than just abandoning flash.

HTML 5 video is stumbling on the codec. Firefox can't use H.264 so this is major blow.
If VP8 was open/fast/supported it could become the codec of the web.
