[Bug 10975] from gmail, JimJJewett said: Audio and Video should show the fallback content (for older browsers) if they do not understand the codec -- even if they understand video (or audio) itself

Concrete use cases:

(a)  Transition period, before the One True Codec is fully established.  This
also includes legacy pages that are undergoing only minimal maintenance.

(b)  Experimental codecs.  These may be there for political reasons.

(c)  Limited devices, such as low-end cell-phones -- particularly those that
tried to use hardware for video, but were finalized before the One True Codec
was.

(d)  Personal or low-budget sites, where something is uploaded in the format it
was captured in, and not transformed.  (There may also be historical or legal
reasons to show something only in the original format.)
