The interview lightly touches upon a thought that crossed my mind: with more people watching
Internet video and live feeds on their phones and Linux gaining ground in the mobile market
space, who knows, we finally might end up with widely used high quality open spec/source audio
& video formats.
Then again, that might just be me, over optimistic, wishful thinking :)

More than likely they'll implement a closed source player on top of the open bits, but as you
say it would be a good opportunity for open formats.

It's not at all unthinkable to have x264 video on those devices, decoding of which can be
offloaded to various media extensions some of these embedded platforms have.
