Good News for External VfE in Safari 5

I just upgraded to Safari 5 (Mac) and was very happy to find:

  1. Safari 5 respects the preload="none" attribute of the HTML5 video tag
  2. Safari 5 will play ogg/theora video

The first point is of immediate relevance to the current version (0.7.1) of my External Video for Everybody WordPress plugin. The second point holds promise for the future of open codecs in HTML5.

Neither improvement seems to be available for the Windows version.
