           Summary: HTML5: Native codec support for <audio> and <video>
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: P3
         Component: HTML DOM
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: mail at alexanderwillner.de

As stated in the HTML5 specification: "It would be helpful for interoperability
if all browsers could support the same codecs."
Firefox[1] and Opera[2] are already working on native support for Ogg Vorbis /
Theora. As far as I know there are open licence/patent issues to be solved
first. However, it might be useful to have native support for at least one
codec on all WebKit platforms.

I've created this bug report since I couldn't find one that addresses this
