Google releases WebM video plug-in for IE9

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 11:49 am

In an effort to bring its Web video technology to a browser that doesn’t support it, Google has released an IE9 plug-in to play WebM video.

The move won’t bring an end to the industry scuffle over the best way to build video into the Web, but it will mean that allies behind Google’s preferred mechanism will be able to reach beyond the three browsers that support WebM today, Google’s Chrome, Opera Software’s Opera, and Mozilla’s Firefox. Apple’s Safari and Microsoft’s brand-new IE9 support the rival H.264 video codec (though IE9 requires Windows 7 or an updated version of Windows Vista).
