HTML5 Video format choice should be based on browser and not OS

Bug Description

When the non-flash version of a generated movie is displayed in the browser directly using the HTML5 video element, the browser is more important than the OS in determining codec and container format support. E.g. although Windows may have better support for .avi files in WMP, Google Chrome on Windows does not like .avi files while it handles .mp4 files fine.
