Youtube has solved all these problems - why not use it?
You can view .webm directly in recent Firefox or Chrome versions on Windows, you
an also view .webm in IE9 and above provided you have the right codecs
installed. It's a perfectly acceptable format.
It doesn't work on the browser that comes with Windows. That makes it
undesirable if you wish to reach the largest audience with the least friction.
Why restrict the audience if you don't have to? What is gained by using .webm
that would offset the reduced audience?
