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.

According to Wikipedia WMV is ASF, so if true I would say it is rather used, if only typically tied to Windows Media codecs. Not that I actually know, though.

I know what you mean, and I do agree. It's just that not actually all those many codecs were equally appropriate at one time. AVI (or more appropriately, DivX codec contained into it), for example, was a nightmare for Mac users pretty much until Perian, VLC or MPlayer for OS X came by, which is not that too long ago.
