It's just a way to enforce google's VP8/WebM (and possibly avoid paying H264 fees).
I think it has more to do with the latter!
Anyway, I think standards in general are good, and particularly when they are free, non-proprietary and open. Everyone will benefit from a free, common ground to stand on.
Of course everyone is totally free to try to build their own, proprietary solutions in parallel, but this WebM will be something every chip manufacturer supports, every gadget manufacturer supports, every sw manufacturer supports and every website using video.
MorphOS is Amiga done right!
MorphOS NG will be AROS done right!
