Google has open-sourced the VP8 video codec:
- VP8, a high-quality video codec we are releasing today under a BSD-style, royalty-free license
- Vorbis, an already open source and broadly implemented audio codec
- a container format based on a subset of the Matroska media container
A bunch of companies are listed as supporting WebM, including Mozilla, Opera, and Adobe. There are two big ones that are missing though.
