Originally posted in April of this year, hendrikp has since developed (and continues to improve) their WebM VideoPlayer plugin for CryEngine 3. For those unfamiliar with WebM, it is an open source video codec as described below.
The WebM project is dedicated to developing a high-quality, open video format for the web that is freely available to everyone. WebM is supported by Mozilla, Opera, Adobe, Google and more than seventy other publishers and software and hardware vendors
