Steve Jobs is not a Fan of Google WebM and VP8 codec

Google unveiled WebM at the Google I/O this week. WebM is open web media format featuring the now open-source VP8 video codec. The Register reports that Steve Jobs answered an email about VP8 with a link to a blog post that sees VP8 weaker than H.264.

H.264 is the video codec Apple currently embraces in Safari's HTML5 video. Given the tensions between Apple and Google it is not surprising that Apple is critical about WebM.

With WebM Google increases the momentum behind HTML5 video. I am not sure if it will matter for end users which codec wins at the end. We just want to watch video on any device.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
