Multimedia, AV Dirac is an advanced royalty-free video compression format designed for a wide range of uses, from delivering low-resolution web content to broadcasting HD and beyond, to near-lossless studio editing. The v1.0.0 version was released yesterday, and the new VLC version supports playback of .ts/.drc Dirac files.

Theora - improvements being made

Firefox is also adding support for it in Firefox 3.1.

With a few hundred million users for Firefox alone, this is not something you can write off easily.
