Thanks, Tiemo. That's a serious bummer.

It's 2017. Is there really no single codec available for Mac, Windows, 
Linux, iOS, and Android which allows playback of a single video file?

Are we stuck in the yesteryear of having to query the user-agent and 
serve different files according to the user's OS?

Extra bonus points if it's no patent-encumbered, but at this point I'll 
take what I can get.
