Multimedia, AV "When I started working on a no-DRM, open-standards-based solution for distributing high-definition video on fixed media ('Lib-Ray'), I naturally thought of Theora, because it was developed as a free software project. Several people have suggested, though, that the VP8 codec would be a better fit for my application. This month, I've finally gotten the necessary vpxtools and mkvtoolnix packages installed on my Debian system, and so I'm having a first-look at VP8. The results are very promising, though the tools are somewhat finicky."

Well I'd say there is another problem that will be a real elephant in the room which is why Google refuses to indemnify VP8 which is the patents on H.264 <snip>


That load of crap again? I thought the trolling had moved on. Oh well. No doubt Google will indemnify users of VP8 once MPEG-LA indemnify users of h.264. Until that time, any talk of indemnification is just double standards and can safely be ignored.
