[Bug 14817] New: There is no required audio or video codec in the specification. However, I think that recommending the use of the AU file format to be supported by <audio> would be a good idea, since none of the vendors have patent issues with the format.

           Summary: There is no required audio or video codec in the
                    specification. However, I think that recommending the
                    use of the AU file format to be supported by <audio>
                    would be a good idea, since none of the vendors have
                    patent issues with the format.
