Three Ways to Play WebM Video

1. Play WebM video With media player: 5KPlayer is a powerful, simple to use and all-in-one WebM player for Windows and Mac, which can play most audio/video multimedias easily and smoothly. It is designed to give users a totally free solution for playing high-definition videos, which include M2TS, AVCHD, MKV, TS, MPEG4, H264 video formats as well as DVD videos and music files.

Other WebM players such as VLC, Miro, Moovida and Winamp, have announced support. MPlayer is also able to play WebM files when built with libvpx. FFmpeg can now encode and decode VP8 videos when built with libvpx support, as well as mux/demux WebM-compliant files.

2: Play WebM with supported browsers: WebM is support by Mozilla Firefox, Opera, and Google Chrome was announced at the 2010 Google I/O conference. Internet Explorer 9 will also be able to support WebM files if the VP8 codec is installed locally. Safari on the desktop supports any codec installed in QuickTime, allowing future WebM playback using QuickTime codec components such as Perian. Epiphany also supports WebM through the GStreamer multimedia framework.

3. Get plug-in for WebM playing: On July 23, 2010 Jason Garrett-Glaser, Ronald Bultje, and David Conrad of the FFmpeg team announced the ffvp8 decoder. Through testing they determined that ffvp8 was faster than Google's own libvpx decoder. mkvtoolnix, the popular Matroska creation tools, have implemented support for Multiplexing/Demultiplexing WebM-compliant files out of the box. Haali Media Splitter has also announced support for muxing/demuxing of WebM.

Licensing of WebM Video

Simon Phipps, a board member for the Open Source Initiative, expressed doubts as to whether the original WebM license was an open-source license, since it had not been submitted to the OSI for approval. In response, the WebM Project decoupled patents from copyright, offering the code under a standard BSD license and patents under a separate grant. The Free Software Foundation, which maintains the Free Software Definition, has given its endorsement for WebM and VP8 and considers the software's license to be compatible with the GNU General Public License.
