Henri,

you might want to check out Cristian's earlier blog about the IE plugin:

http://cristianadam.blogspot.com/2010/01/ie-tag.html

Cristian tells me: IE8 needs to make the connection between <video>
tag and it's implementor through that additional attribute. The IE6,
IE7 way is way uglier than a xmlns attribute.

Cheers,
Silvia.
