Mozilla is going to implement gstreamer backend for html5 video element. See Bug 422540.

Also, Opera developers are going the same way. See this blog post.

Using gstreamer as a backend will eliminate ALL the problems with codecs. Forever. It will be able to play just the same as a usual desktop players, and that means, it will be able to play Ogg Theora, H.264, DivX, whatever you like - it's only a matter of plugins installed.
