Another Standards Victory: YouTube Videos via HTML 5
HTML5 includes support for video and audio playback, so users with an HTML5-compatible browser, (and don't forget their computer has to support the proper audio and video codecs) are able to view a video without needing to download and install a browser plugin.
The YouTube experiment does have some limitations. It doesn't support videos with ads, captions, or annotations and the viewer must use a browser that supports both the video tag and h.264 encoded video (such browsers include Chrome, Safari, and ChromeFrame on Internet Explorer).
If you'd like to see the experiment in action, visit the YouTube HTML5 Video Player page. Doing so will allow you to join the experiment and will enable HTML5 for your browser (even MSIE if you use the Chrome Frame).
Google is very optimistic about HTML5 as an open standard and wants to be part of the standardization and acceptance of HTML5.
