[PCM] Google Offers WebM Plugin for IE9

The HTML5 video codec scuffle continues. Independent blog Google Operating System has spotted an Internet Explorer 9 plug-in created by Google that will allow the new browser from Microsoft to play HTML5 video in Google's WebM format.

Though the search behemoth hasn't officially announced the plug-in software, it's downloadable in a technology preview form from Google's WebM for IE9 page. Earlier this year, after Google announced that Chrome would no longer support the competing (and widely used) H.264 video codec, Microsoft released a plug-in for Chrome that would allow it to play H.264, so the Google WebM move could be seen as response.
