Spread the word: Google open-sources VP8 codec

Subject says all! It is great to see modern, efficient, and supposedly not patent encumbered codec pushed by a major vendor.

It got a new name, too: Now called WebM = VP8 + Vorbis in an Matroska container.

Update: Apparently does not really live up to expectations, … :-( Though at least more open video codec code, and traction in the X.264 patent debate against Theora, et al.

Update 2: And in T2.
