no - H.264 is only the free stuff. Pretty well its all WindowsMedia -
because of the DRM capabilities. The rights holders are insisting on that.
No DRM = no content. (from the big content houses)
The advantage of WM DRM is that smaller players can add DRM to their
content quite easily and these folks want to be able to control that space.
Even when they are part of an International conglomerate, each country
subsidiary seems to get non-DRM'ed material and repackage it (ie add DRM).
I understand this is how folks like Sony dish out the rights - on a country
basis, so each subsidiary gets to define the business rights (ie play
rights) in their own country space. WM DRM has all of this well defined.
