Firefox to Support Google’s VP9 Codec from Version 28 On

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

The rest of the story is that Firefox will only support the Google video codec until Mozilla finishes its own video codec some time next year …

Mozilla improved Firefox’s support for select audio and video formats recently. For a long time, it did not really matter which codecs a web browser supported and which it did not, thanks to Adobe Flash and the way it handled that stuff. The rise of HTML5 video and audio however dragged along with it codecs that the browser needed to support suddenly to play media files directly.
