The VIDEO element will not be useless without a common decoder.  Its
usefulness depends on its content: it will be limited to user agents that
support at least one encoding offered by the author.  Even if a common
decoder is specified, many authors will not use it because they do not know
it, they do not have the tools, they are reluctant to learn or they consider
the proprietary solution better for production and valid for their target
audience.

IMHO,

Chris
