Yesterday an inbound liaison statement from the W3C was received by the IETF. The takeaway is this, we need a non-royalty baring video codec, period.

Thank you! The reality is that if we go with H.264 / AVC in hopes that the MPEG-LA will eventually drop the royalties on this codec we could be in for a surprise when they vote not do so.  VP8 looks like the only real contender at this time.

Here’s hoping we can get this done soon.
