That's just it; it doesn't HAVE to pay royalties on anything. Firefox is perfectly free to hook into Quicktime (Mac OS X), DirectShow (Microsoft Windows), or gstreamer (Linux/UNIX systems) to get access to codecs already installed and licensed on the operating system. They really should have made this an option rather than crippling h.264 video in Firefox entirely. I am quite disappointed in Mozilla for this. Sigh.
