   We never talked about which codecs, we support Gstreamer and ffmpeg,
so we support whatever codec those support, although right now the
ffmpeg support works better.

Okay - so when Gnash is 1.0, the video sites like YouTube and Google
Video and such will play with it?

Most of the discussion was on which which
library to use, so we decided to support several.

Cool! :-)

I don't think this
blogger is really paying attention, and I'm not sure what the BBC uses.

The BBC uses Real and Windows Media, and the originally blog poster
suggested they use Flash because "It's the end of 2006 and the online
video format wars are over. Flash won. Please use Flash video on your
web site to provide a hassle-free viewing experience to the widest
possible audience."

My original quote was a from comment on that post.
