According to this Press Release via OS News , it appears Sun Microsystems allow the redistribution of their Java development for Linux distributions under a new license called Operation System Distributor's License for Java or in short "Distro License for Java". Currently, only binaries are licensed as the source code is not available for the public although SUN promise to open source Java . I wonder if that announcement will affect the whole GCJ on which Fedora Project is focusing. Pour les francophones: Selon cette note de presse via OS News, Sun Microsystems permet la redistribution des binaires Java pour les distribution de Linux sous la nouvelle license nomm&ecaute;e License des distros pour Java . Je me demande si cette annonce affectera le développement de GCJ.
To say that MPEG-LA will be docile with it's handling of the Mpeg-4 technology is also naive. I am not doing to say that Theora is great (it's improving in an impressive measure, but it's not great yet), but it really seem to be the only option for free-flowing video data.
I am not sure that people will be saying the same things of H.264 (which, from my own look at the decoders, is problematic) if and/or when MPEG-LA cracks down on the patents. And there is way too much money in play for MPEG-LA not to do some legal in that space, the royalties that they will make on something like Blu-ray alone will be astronomical. I am looking at this as a simple "John Doe" going that it's way too much money to over look. And I doubt that MPEG-LA will... if history has shown.
What I consider curious with Google in this debate is that One, Youtube hasn't done a full change into the format yet. The only thing that I have seen is Youtube tinkering with the video tag so far... so I am not sure if H.264 is the format of choice yet over Youtube.
Second, as a provider of content, moving to H.264 would be highly unwise for Youtube to do. Google is not known to hiring idiots, I think that they clearly know that this with the looming spectre of patent enforcement the space that H.264 holds will become volatile (How much so is anyone's guess). Youtube, nor Google doesn't seem to be the type of company to bet the data farm on that... I could be wrong through, but that is Google's bread and butter. I expect them to be protective of that.
Third, I was looking at the Chrome 3 builds a few days ago [See here], and there is something curious in it's use of ffmpeg, the decoders libaries they they use in the video and audio tags... if you look at the build tags they use for ffmpeg, everything except all that is needed for Theora libraries (and OGG and Vorbis) is disabled. Or what is what they are suggesting that is how it should be build.
That said, you are saying what I have been saying for years.
Mozilla did a test and posted the result with screenshots. Google can also include Theora support. From what I read, the assertion that Theora is no good is based on outdated information.
Thank you for this insightful comment.
If anything, life at Youtube remains unchanged. Currently.
I have been speaking about how the video tag would really change how youtube provide content for a few months now. Since as good as it is now, there is a barrier. If your browser of choice didn't have a plug-in for flash video (there are a few), there was very little hope for you with youtube... either as a developer or as a user.
You could rely on something like Gnash or swfdec, but they are limited in what they can do and/or are hopeless behind what Adobe does with Flash.
As much as I see this push to move into Silverlight with online video, I see Moonlight in the same spot as Gnash or swfdec. Limited in what it is capable of and behind what Microsoft does with Silverlight (through with some co-operation with MS, it's not as bad. But it's still bad.)
This sidesteps that wall (assuming that the raging codec debate settles with a clear winner) completely.
Personally speaking, I see Theora doing very well in this space, since it would simply allow for free-flowing video data (based on it's licensing alone) over the internet... something that Google thrives on with text ad's currently.
If Youtube's tinkering with the video tag is something of an indication. That point (that Google earns lots of money when data [text or otherwise] is free-flowing) is not lost on Google, and they are investigating their options. It's really a matter of the codec debate being solved with something that pleases all parties... but I can't see that can of worms being solved before HMTL5 is presented to W3C, (where it's likely to be more of a mess in it's current state, with so many vested interests in W3C's corporate membership).
