Yep and you can thank the magic of Ffmpeg for a lot of that.
Hands down their multicodec is superior to most commercial codecs and if they are not superior then it's damn close or it's because certain specific features are missing.
Divx/Xvid < ffmpeg for instance.
They have H.264 support. Can play flash video files (*.flv files from youtube.com for instance) and all sorts of other goodies.
Especially that SNOW experimental codec that is in ffmpeg. They made that and it's probably superior in compression/quality then the current "Hi-def" champion: h.264
Although unfortunately these sort of things need more love from developers. Potential for being the Vorbis of Video.
