Super-cool, Tom. Thanks for posting that.

It's an impressive work, both technically for its breadth of support and 
with its license, the permissive MIT-like BSD 2-Clause "Simplified" License.

Curious about how they were able to pull that off without triggering the 
patent wrath of the MPEG-LA consortium, it seems Cisco wrote a large 
check and is absorbing the cost internally, not passing that cost on to 
users of the component:

This is how we can watch Netflix in Firefox, and many other things with 
proprietary and DRM content.

Thanks, Cisco!
