Google and it's VP8 video is the best!
VP8 is for HD video on the web so for those of you who all the sudden can't watch some video's on the web it's because the website your on supports only the older more expensive(for companies) H.264 video fromat. Google has transitioned it's chrome browser to support the best HD video available (VP8) and I think Netflix might be doing this soon because VP8 is so much better(faster and quality wise) for HD and it's free for all. H.264 is slower because it takes more computing power (cpu) to use and it cost's the companies that use it in there video big money. For more on VP8 just google it and/or refer to this article http://www.zdnet.com/blog/perlow/googles-h264-decision-its-all-about-youtube-costs/15529?tag=nl.e539
