On Win8 with the new WMF backend, CodecDetect.com doesn't detect support for the formats we now support. IE and Chrome don't get full marks either, so maybe the page is testing the wrong codecs params.
Looks like a site bug

Should we mark it as INVALID? Site code is here - https://github.com/jansensan/codec-detect
The code is indeed fine. They test appropriately the feature: for example: isMPEG4VideoSupported = "" !== video.canPlayType('video/mp4; codecs="mp4v.20.8"'); in https://github.com/jansensan/codec-detect/blob/master/assets/js/main.js Please reopen if I have missed something.

The code is totally wrong. They testing for AAC like so: isAACAudioSupported = "" !== audio.canPlayType('audio/aac; codecs="mpeg 4, aac"'); https://github.com/jansensan/codec-detect/blob/master/assets/js/main.js#L231 That is totally wrong, and it doesn't return true on any major browser on Windows.

Ah good grief! Chris. Maybe https://github.com/jansensan/codec-detect/issues is a better place to report this.
http://codecdetect.com/ The page returns for Firefox Nightly on Macosx # Video Codecs MPEG4 is not supported H264 is probably supported OGG is probably supported WEBM is probably supported # Audio Codecs MP3 is maybe supported AAC is probably supported WEBM is probably supported OGG (Vorbis) is probably supported OGG (Opus) is probably supported Wave is probably supported Is there an issue? Chris if Yes, could you open on https://github.com/jansensan/codec-detect/issues/new
