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. /Manuel -- Wikimedia CH - Verein zur Förderung Freien Wissens Lausanne, +41 (21) 34066-22 - www.wikimedia.ch _______________________________________________ http://wikimedia.ch Wikimedia CH website Wikimediach-l mailing list https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediach-l
