I'd like to request to add codecs as standard for the <video> tag.

flv -> Very common on the web 

mpeg4 (many browsers have it but I can't see it specified) -> The high quality
substitute for flv.

H.264 (optional but useful) -> A lot used specially with mkv, these days.

Xvid -> Lots of OS have native support for it (according to my research) and
it's a fair step between the flv and mpeg4.

For audio codecs:
FLAC -> The standard these days to distribute in a lossless quality and a fair
memory use (for a lossless audio).

mpeg3 -> The standard audio these days. A good balance between quality and
memory used.

Speex -> The audio codec of choice by Flash player 10 for flv.
