Microsoft plugin re-adds H.264 support to Chrome

Posted on Wednesday, February 02 2011 @ 20:03:57 CET by

PC Pro reports a new plugin from Microsoft will add H.264 video support to Chrome. Support for this file format was ditched by Google last week in favor of the company's own freely available WebM format.
Google ditched HTML5 support for H.264 video last month, citing the codec's licensing requirements. Instead, Google said the HTML video tag should favour the freely available WebM.

Today, Microsoft revealed the Windows Media Player HTML5 Extension for Chrome, which will let users of the Google browser play H.264 video.

"At Microsoft we respect that Windows customers want the best experience of the web including the ability to enjoy the widest range of content available on the internet in H.264 format," said Claudio Caldato, interoperability program manager, in a Microsoft blog post.
