#746 closed enhancement (no-action)
Recommend users of patent-endorsing Web browsers to install a Xiph.Org media plugin
|Reported by:||P. J. McDermott||Owned by:|
As discussed on IRC, some Web browsers (Apple Safari and Microsoft Internet Explorer) don't support WebM VP8+Vorbis media. Apparently Xiph.Org offers Apple QuickTime Compenents and Microsoft DirectShow Filters that should enable these browsers to play WebM VP8+Vorbis media.
MediaGoblin could recommend users of these browsers to install these packages to play media on MediaGoblin sites.
Another solution may be to support encoding in Ogg Theora+Vorbis (as requested in #567) and use Cortado to play media in these browsers (as well as older browsers that don't support HTML5 <video>).

Closing - support for WebM is better these days and these plugins are no longer maintained.
