Right.

MP4 is a container format, such as AVI, MOV, OGG or WebM.

That's why I am talking in my explanation about MP4 / H.264 or just
H.264 - which is the problematic codec.

When we talk about Wikimedia Commons and video, Ogg means Ogg/Theora and
WebM means VP8, the two free (as in speech) video codecs we are
accepting at the moment.
H.264 is for individual users also free but as in beer, not speech. And
that is the core of the discussion.
