An anonymous reader writes “The Free Software Foundation has signed up as a supporter of the WebM Project. They write, ‘Last week, Google announced that it plans to remove support for the H.264 video codec from its browsers, in favor of the WebM codec that they recently made free. Since then, there’s been a lot of discussion about how this change will affect the Web going forward, as HTML5 standards like the video tag mature. We applaud Google for this change; it’s a positive step for free software, its users, and everyone who uses the Web.’ The FSF’s PlayOgg campaign will be revamped to become PlayFreedom.”
