What you want is out of control of the encoders. When players refuse to support 
a standard then there is nothing the encoders can do about it.

Most people skip right past the default players and install VLC. VLC runs on all 
the platforms you've mentioned (and more). It supports the latest and best video 
& audio standards, comes with the same user interface and nobody needs to make 
any compromises with regards to quality or versatility (except for having to 
install it). It's been the perfect solution to this problem and the reason for 
its popularity, but it's also likely not the solution you were expecting to find.
