Multimedia, AV A few days ago, Google and the MPEG-LA announced that they had come to an agreement under which Google received a license for techniques in VP8 that may infringe upon MPEG-LA patents (note the 'if any'). Only a few days later, we learn the real reason behind Google and the MPEG-LA striking a deal, thanks to The H Open, making it clear that the MPEG-LA has lost. Big time. Update: Chris Montgomery: "The wording suggests Google paid some money to grease this along, and the agreement wording is interesting [and instructive] but make no mistake: Google won. Full stop."

I don't know the answer, but you already asked the exact same question here, and lemur2 already gave you a good starting point which you seem to have completely ignored in re-asking your question.



My bad. I checked that thread a couple of times but haven't since the response was posted, sorry.

Thanks your own response to my question by the way.
