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.

I agree with Eugenia 100%. Going to all the effort to create a codec and faltering on the last important step. Many have followed the same path...
What's better: stable codec that 20% of typical users can get going OR
not-so-stable codec that 90% of typical users can use.
I know which one will die a quick death first.
