Google Okay, this news hit my inbox and the OSNews queue this morning (and another ten million times during the day) but since I was doing more important things than OSNews today, I only now have the time to dive into this. A site I've never heard before claims that Google will open source the VP8 video codec next month, providing the world with a high-quality, royalty and patent-free codec, which will most likely cause the internet to spontaneously start farting unicorns.

many thanks for sharing this link. though I don't understand all the details in video, encoding etc. Still its an excellent article.

as for Google opening up VP8 (still a rumour), it will only benefit all (including Google) I hope and Theora too.
