unencumbered means it can be implemented without paying royalties. That's kind of a big deal in many projects. h.264 does have a royalty free (read market maximization) period for some uses/volumes right now, but they aren't permanent.

As for quality, it's fully up to par with mpeg4 afaik.

To take a project that /. is familiar with, the raspberry pi, a significant chunk of it's price goes directly to codec royalties.

I don't mind h.264 being used, but I'd love to see WebM also, being free and all.

When someone says "I want a programming language in which I need only say what I wish done," give him a lollipop.
