Multimedia, AV Dirac is an advanced royalty-free video compression format designed for a wide range of uses, from delivering low-resolution web content to broadcasting HD and beyond, to near-lossless studio editing. The v1.0.0 version was released yesterday, and the new VLC version supports playback of .ts/.drc Dirac files.

Here's hoping that YouTube et al integrate some detection which will give Linux users a Theora or Dirac embedded video instead of FLSH.

Probably not Dirac though as they already seem to be having difficulties with CPU power needed to encode videos to MP4... And Dirac takes ten times more...
