of course all the non-default videos are in non-free codecs... major publishers aren't using free codecs. So its a classic chicken and egg problem. We have to pretend we are an open technology version of Sony and create demand for our open technology by getting out and front and producing our own content or paying for the production of content that uses the technology we are pushing. We've no hope of making things better unless the people who care about openly encoded a/v get out ahead and start producing content showcasing the tech.
