Folks, you completely missed the Evil Google angle here.
Youtube is Google. Google is WebM.
Google acquired the VP8 codec through its $123 million acquisition of On2 Technologies last year.
Luckily for you IE9 troglodytes, Google has kindly made an app for you to download and install on IE9 which will enable you to view WebM format videos.
WebM for IE9 is free software that enables support for playing WebM videos in Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 on Windows 7 and Windows Vista.
Evil google plan to gain access to IE9 users data.
Help make this product better by automatically sending usage statistics and crash reports to the WebM Project.
