Google WebP Gets More Features, Broader Support

The WebP image format is a new format derived from the WebM technology and the VP8 codec. It allows an image to retain all its quality while reducing its overall size and making it possible to load images before the browser has finished decoding them.Support for “decode as you load” image display will be made available in Chrome as early as version 12. As with any new format, however, WebP must face the challenges of convincing the masses to adopt. Google, as usual, is trying to bribe everyone with features.

Click the button to submit and we'll post them. The songs can be about anything: local issues, national, international, whatever. We don't care. We just want music about what's going on.

Mozilla Rejects WebP Image Format, Google Adds It to Picasa | The Royalty-Free Guide | Scoop.it
Google built the royalty-free WebM video format with the sophisticated VP8 compression technology that it obtained in its 2009 acquisition of On2.

How HTML5 Will Transform the Online Video Landscape

How HTML5 Will Transform the Online Video Landscape | The Royalty-Free Guide | Scoop.it
In spite of its promise, the tag is one of the most controversial and contentious aspects of the HTML5 specification. The controversy stems over the various codecs that can be used with HTML5.

There are three different video codecs — or formats — that can be used with the tag. These formats are H.264, Ogg Theora and WebM. The technical merits of these formats vary — for what it is worth, H.264 tends to have the best size-to-quality ratio and has best support of commercial encoding, serving and processing tools. H.264 is also well-supported by hardware vendors and chipset makers.

The problem with H.264 is that it is controlled by the MPEG LA, and as such, needs to be licensed for use. The licensing costs don’t mean much to the average video consumer, but could potentially cost video producers or software makers lots of money. Ogg Theora and WebM are royalty-free, which means that software developers and content distributors can use the codec without having to pay licensing fees.

Unlicense Yourself: Set Your Code Free

Unlicense Yourself: Set Your Code Free | The Royalty-Free Guide | Scoop.it
The Unlicense is a template for disclaiming copyright interest in software you've written; in other words, it is a template for dedicating your software to the public domain. It combines a copyright waiver patterned after the very successful public domain SQLite project with the no-warranty statement from the widely-used MIT/X11 license.

MPEG Envisages Royalty-Free MPEG Video Coding Standard

MPEG Envisages Royalty-Free MPEG Video Coding Standard | The Royalty-Free Guide | Scoop.it
In recognition of the growing importance that the Internet plays in the generation and consumption of video content, MPEG intends to develop a new video compression standard in line with the expected usage models of the Internet. The new standard is intended to achieve substantially better compression performance than that offered by MPEG-2 and possibly comparable to that offered by the AVC Baseline Profile. MPEG will issue a call for proposals on video compression technology at the end of its upcoming meeting in March 2011 that is expected to lead to a standard falling under ISO/IEC “Type-1 licensing”, i.e. intended to be “royalty free”.
