Dailymotion adds support for video format Ogg

Online video provider Dailymotion added support for the open video format Ogg, and will soon have 300,000 videos encoded with the format. The company is adding support for the new video HTML tag which will be available with the beta release of Firefox 3.5.

Ogg is a free and open source video format (or “container”) that optimizes video streaming and manipulation. The new video tag provides improved flexibility including the ability to modify and control videos using web standards like JavaScript and cascading style sheets (CSS).

Dailymotion is an online video provider based in France that has 5 million users according to Compete.com. The company was founded in March of 2005, just one month after YouTube launched.
