Internet & Networking Despite the recent interest in adopting HTML5's video tag, there is still one major problem: there is no mandated standard video codec for the video tag. The two main contestants are the proprietary and patended h264, and the open and free Theora. In a comment on an LWN.net article about this problematic situation, LWN reader Trelane posted an email exchange he had with MPEG-LA, which should further cement Theora as the obvious choice.

You have swallowed the FUD.

There are no parts of VP3 that are patented by someone other than On2.


No. There are no *known* patents other than those hold by On2. The only way to prove that there are no other patents would be to read all valid patents and consider whether those could apply to VP3.
