[APPROVED] Tag implication: webm -> video

Posted under Tags

The tag implication #8827 webm -> video has been approved.

Reason: (MP4 too) it's not clear why there's a separate video tag if there's more "WEBM"s than videos. wiki entry for "video" is blank, so if there is a reason, it should be there.

the difference between MP4 and webm is meaningless to the end user in 2019, they're just html5 video tags and behave in exactly the same way.

results should be similar to "animated -animated_gif"

perhaps we should be classifying video files by codec (h264, vp8, vp9, h265, and soon AV1) as this is what actually determines compatibility, quality and file size?

EDIT: The tag implication webm -> video (forum #465) has been approved by @thatenemy.

Actually a webm file plays differently on telegram then a mp4 would. So I wouldn't do that ... But I'm always about adding more information to distinguish quality. Anyone can create a tag btw

Implication has been approved. Can't hurt.
