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.

As I said, PureVideo and AVIVO don't help you with a new codec like VP8. So if you can't decode VP8 with PureVideo and you can't decode it with shaders, then you're going to be stuck using the CPU.
