I left Chrome for a while because I was annoyed about Google taking away H.264 support. I won't go into my reasons why, but I'm considering using Chrome more as my default browser again.

The problem is, I still want native H.264 support in the browser since so many sites (YouTube, which Google runs, yeah...) don't provide WebM HTML5 video.

I know there's a plugin for Windows that Microsoft were kind enough to release, but what about us Mac users?

Google have said that they will remove H.264 support from Chrome, but, as far as I know, they have yet to do it (at least up to May). In short, it ought to work out the box, without any plugins.

You can use an extension such as Play in QuickTime.

The other alternative is to compile Chromium with your custom ffmpeg library that does support H.264
