Since IE9 won't be officially released until sometime next year, the current answer to your question is "no".

I believe tedster misunderstood your question.

The current HTML5 draft specification does not specify which video formats browsers should support in the video tag. User agents are free to support any video formats they feel are appropriate.

There is a huge debate going on: [en.wikipedia.org...]
