This is what I am looking for since a longer time and even made a proposal to the WMF, which got dismissed due to the patent problematics. The point is that we don't just need a conversion service but also a way allowing us to collaboratively work on videos and store our raw videos (this is where MP4 / H.264 comes in). So if the WMF can sort out the legal problem on accepting H.264, I would vote to only use it as an input format (which is one of the options on the RfC page). With that done, we could finally implement a video solution allowing collaborative editing and storage of raw material. The output always should be a free codec / format, fully agree with that.
