Microsoft Adds H.264 Support to Chrome on Windows 7 with Add-On
Microsoft offers H.264 plug-in for Chrome, queries Google on WebM
Dean Hachamovitch, corporate vice president for Internet Explorer, today announced the launch of a plug-in for Google's Chrome Web browser that reinstates support for the H.264 video codec when used with HTML5's <video> tag. The plug-in will enable Chrome users on Windows 7 to view H.264 video, even though Google announced the decision to remove native support for the codec last month. This decision mirrors the company's release last December of an equivalent Firefox plug-in.
Microsoft is doing what Google won’t, namely support H.264 on Chrome.
After Google announced recently that its open source browser will no longer play nice with the H.264 video format, the Redmond company is now making sure that Chrome users that want the choice to play H.264 encoded HTML5 video, will be able to do so.
