Open video, not Flash, is coming to Wikipedia
The site calls for video submissions to Wikipedia, and points out that "Wikipedia uses a 100% free and open source video stack powered by HTML5 and Theora. The articles are free to share and reuse, there's no advertising, and the software that runs the site is free and open source." Miro has even launched a video converter for Mac and Windows, so you can easily get your videos into the open format and contribute them to Wikipedia.
The new campaign specifically rails against propriety video technologies like Flash and even H.264, which is a competitor to Theora in the HTML5 video field. No surprise that Mozilla's involved, here. A major site adopting Theora gives a big boost to Mozilla's philosophical and financial decision not to license H.264 for Firefox.
