Please browser makers, make sure your browser only supports one video codec! And PLEASE make sure it's not compatible with any other. We want video staff and encoding farms doing at least five encoding runs. That's billions of gigawatts a year to help melt snow in Canada, please do it for Steve!

The problem is that top video and audio standards aren't free and open. It shouldn't be allowed that s global standard is patented. H.264 is such a standard. H.265 as well. Google wanted to push WebM format, which is open and free, but the rest of the herd (including Apple) didn't accept it. Apple is of course one of the patent holders of H.264. They earn a lot of money from licensing.

Same with audio. MP3 is a patented format. It's ubiquitous, but it shouldn't be, because standards should be free and open. Not only that, but big corporations will on purpose kill any free and open competing format. Just like Apple said they won't support WebM, I suspect that MP3 patent holders are making pressure on rejecting the OGG format in industry. Ask yourself why is no car-stereo in the world supporting OGG?

They support MP3, WMA, WAV, AC3, AAC and even FLAC, but none of them supports OGG. That's weird, because OGG is older than most of them and more widespread than some of them. E.g. FLAC. However, FLAC is not a danger to MP3, AC3 or AAC. FLAC files are compressed losslessly (keeping 100% original quality) and for that reason they are huge. Smaller than uncompressed WAV, but bigger than any of those other formats.

OGG on the other hand is the equivalent of MP3 Pro, offers very good audio quality and smaller size than MP3. And for that reason, none of the mobile players, car-stereos and other devices support it. There are people who (pissed off by that fact) created their own car-stereos that support OGG, but none of those devices are in serial production.

That's how things work in real world. Politics and economy against freedom and science.
