ChiefMonkeyGrinder writes “You know something big must be afoot when people start to get worked up over video compression standards. Basically, the issue is whether the current de facto standard, H.264, will continue to dominate this field, and if not, what might take over.”

Related, reader eihab writes “Nuanti, a company that develops Web browsing technologies, has produced a high-performance Ogg Theora decoder for Microsoft’s Silverlight browser plugin. Nuanti’s Highgate Media Suite will enable support for standards-based HTML5 video streaming with Theora in browsers that have Silverlight. It works entirely without requiring the users to install any additional software.”
