Google A few months ago, Google open sourced the VP8 video codec as part of the WebM video project, to create a truly Free/free unencumbered video format for the web as an answer to the non-Free/free patent-encumbered H264 format. Today, Google launched a new image format for the web, WebP, which aims to significantly reduce the file size of photos and images on the web.

That it's in a RIFF container, when Chrome won't even play raw unencoded PCM in a .wav file with it's AUDIO tag...

Which is just a RIFF container with raw data in it... and here I thought they were into that whole "RIFF comes from the evil empire" mentality on that. Kinda surprised they didn't just gut matroska for it like they did with webM.

Lemme guess, right hand knows not the left?

Looking at wikipedia RIFF was created after AIFF (apple). The one difference being RIFF is little endian and AIFF is big endian.
