For wmv, mp4, and other formats, are the object and embed tags still the way to go? Or does HTML5 handle everything?

HTML5 doesn't specify specific codecs. What formats are supported is up to the browsers.

Have a look at this summary: http://caniuse.com/#feat=video

Click on the links next to 'Sub-features' to see the browser support for the main video formats.
