Tim Sneath from Microsoft criticized Google in its official blog post for ending up its support for H.264 video format.  Earlier the Google’s Chrome web browser had a build in codec for H.264 video format but soon the company is going to withdraw its support. In favor of his company, Microsoft’s Tim says that they have created WebM standard for H.264 video format support. In his blog post on MSDN, he entitled an Open Letter posted by the President of United States of Google.

A survey made by Tech Crunch revealed that H.264 video codec format is used by about 66 percent of all videos that are uploaded on the web. The withdrawal of H.264 video format from Google Chrome has been liked by many. Just like Google, Apple also dropped out its support for flash. Now following are some of the key features that are provided by Google Chrome web Browser. Chrome web Browser is integrated with H.264 video codec format and the latest WebM standard that is released by Microsoft recently.
The H.264 video codec format is supported by WebM (VP8) and the Theora video codecs. These codecs are the latest codec formats that are available to the web. The WebM platform of video codecs is supposed to provide other high-quality open codecs in future, although H.264 video codec plays a vital role in video technology.
The main goal of H.264 video codec technology is to provide open innovation for video codec platform. Nowadays, WebM stands for the standard of Web Technologies. The major cause of the success behind the web technologies is its core technologies like HTML, HTTP, TCP/IP etc. and these are open to all and freely implementable at any level. Nowadays the video platform in web technologies is also a core component of web experience and unfortunately, there is no open and free video format.
WebM is a broad solution for the issues concerned with web technologies. WebM is supported with a big backed up community over internet AND several developers are free to join this community to help further to make this platform more advanced.
Following are the basic features that are available in WebM Standards:
WebM platform of web is greatly supported by VP8 codec. VP8 is a high-quality video codec for websites, which is released under a royalty-free license.
Further, the enhancement of WebM platform is supported by Vorbis Codec. It is an open source audio codec, which is broadly implemented on web.
The WebM platform is also enhanced by a container format, which is based on subset of Mkv media codec container.
The patent of H.264 video codec format is owned by MPEG LA. Also, this codec is royalty-free with a condition that the content based on should be distributed freely. Otherwise, a fee for licensing should be paid to the holder of patent of the H.2646 video codec format.
The WebM standard of video platform on web is also a royalty-free format. It has no licensing fees. This is the reason behind people criticized Google for dropping its support of H.264 video codec format on Chrome.
