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.

Seems like a logical step for google to do,
with all the discussion about which standard html5 should have this could be a great option. I hope this is true, internet should be open and accesible for everyone and this codec would help alot.
