Intel One name was conspicuously absent from the list of companies backing Google's WebM project and the VP8 codec. Despite other chip makers and designers being on the list, like AMD, NVIDIA, ARM, and Qualcomm, Intel didn't make an appearance. Yesterday, the company made its first careful commitment to the WebM project.

Intel always seems to be late to adopt anything new.


How are they late to the party given that VP8 was only released a few weeks ago with the chip in question on the board since September 2009. I don't blame Intel's cautiousness given how the vultures of MPEG-LA seem to be circling.
