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.

Committing publicly to having support in named chipsets on a stated timescale meets and exceeds my definition of having "done a single thing". It is certainly better than than saying you'll wait and see what happens by any measure.

Intel aren't as strong in these markets, their chips are often paired with hardware decoders or GPUs from other manufacturers, but it would be nice to have them on board.
