Excellent. I will have a play with this. I see that VLC can support
theora. I would like to see how the quality of theora encoding
compares to other formats, and what trade-offs can be made
between compression size and video quality.
I note tha PNG evolved as an open standard for images, probably
in response to the GIF patent. And after a number of years is now
supported in most browsers and image editing suites.
I don't get the feeling the same progress has been made with ogg
vorbis audio (yet) but we can wait. I hope similar will happen to
