IE9 Team Says "Our GPU Acceleration Is Better Than Yours"
I tried to submit something through the feedback thing, but as far as I can tell, things written there go nowhere, so who knows.
No, we read pretty much all the feedback (through filtered and clustered searches) -- the volume is very high, and so we can't respond to individual comments, though.
We are aware of the issue with hardware acceleration on certain setups. Try updating your graphics card drivers and try again?

Vimeo Also Introduces HTML5 Video Player
Google recently acquired On2, makers of the Ogg Theora (aka VP-3) codec which was released into the public domain and then taken over by xiph.org.
On2 have codecs VP-7 and VP-8 which have equivalent (if not better) quality than h.264.
It would not be surprising if Google made those codecs available, since they aren't patent-encumbered, and Google is heavily invested in HTML5 --and likes open standards.
This would be the ideal outcome. h.264 is a really bad option.

You mean like the open source Zope (written in Python), invented over 10 years ago? Great, now I can tie my open source language to a closed-source object store.
