Just saw this article ... "WebM's royalty-free HTML5 video raises patent issues" ... http://www.electronista.com/articles/10/05/19/google.mozilla.opera.may.be.in.trouble.with.webm/ .
The author raises solid questions about patent and quality issues around Google's VP8 efforts.

> For those who have been following (or not following) the whole HTML5 video

> codec kerfuffle: Google announced today that they will be open-sourcing

> the VP8 codec (which they acquired with their purchase of On2) and Google,

> Mozilla, Opera and Microsoft have already announced support for this codec

> in upcoming browser releases. No word yet from Cupertino. (as John starts

> humming "The cheese stands alone.")
