Ask Mark Pilgrim for details... He's done the proprietary dance too many
times, and it's left him a bitter man.

This will change as the first wave of video creators get older and
struggle to keep their older work viable in proprietary formats.
Remember when REAL video was the de-facto standard? I still run across
archives that are still require REAL to watch.
Also, an open source codec allows for the community to create an
infinite number of tools...without the fear of the tools breaking if a
change is made. I think it'll allow for a lot more creativity at a
much lower price.
we have a long way to go, but it feels as if it's really starting to
come together now: http://openvideoconference.org/
