Dan Benjamin is joined by "Christina Warren":http://planetchristina.com of "Mashable":http://mashable.com and "Nilay Patel of Engadget":http://engadget.com to discuss the issues surrounding h.264.

They talk about the differences between consumers, creators and distributors (and how that line has been blurred), the patent minefield that exists in all codecs (but might be unknown in Ogg), the realities of the licensing structure, what VP8 means, and how it all really affects end-users.

Special guests Christina Warren & Nilay Patel.
