But hopefully the user agents will choose to do something a bit more  
user friendly like automatically download and install the appropriate  
codec and instruct the user to reload the page (hopefully they could  
do it in a way that doesn't require reloading or restarting the browser)

Or maybe fill the video area with a message indicating why the video  
can't be played and "Click here to view fallback content".
