Why is JavaFX not supporting open video container and codec?
>From Java 9 VP6 is deprecated.

The only relevant supported coded for JavaFX is H.264/AVC. The only other
alternative is VP6 which has been deprecated in Java 9.

We cannot use H.264 without paying lisence fee for a commercial application.

Support for Ogg Theroa/Vorbis should be considered, at least VP8 and/or VP9
in place for the deprecated VP6. The MediaPlayer for Java 10 has not gotten
any changes either. I reckon it is too late for Java 9 to get new formats.
