HTML5 Theora Video Codec for Silverlight

,----[ Quote ]
| Iâm glad to announce the first release of 
| our fully managed Theora audio / video 
| decoder implementation for the Silverlight 
| platform! The Highgate media suite will 
| bring installation-free support for HTML5 
| streaming video to an additional ~40% of 
| web users overnight.


Firefox Addon: Fox Clocks

,----[ Quote ]
| So, today I was hanging out at IRC, which I 
| usually do and is totally awesome, a friend 
| of mine, duanedesign, told me about this 
| new Firefox addon, Fox Clocks, which lets 
| you keep track of different timezones. The 
| best part is that you can create watchlists 
| for your different international friends 
| and keep a better track of their sleeping 
| and working timings. Let me show you how it 
| works.



Licensing Delay Complicates Decision Between Open Source and Proprietary Video Players

,----[ Quote ]
| "Gack!" you say (justifiably). "Thank goodness
| I don't need to know about this H.264-HTML5-Ogg
| Theora mumbo-jumbo." Unfortunately, if you are
| in charge of encoding video for your Web site,
| if you design video players, or manage those
| who do, then you probably do need to pay
| attention.
| Blame it on YouTube and Apple. Though they
| didn't start it, their recent moves have
| brought the debate about open-source video
| codecs from niche blogs to a wider audience.
| [...]
| There is one major obstacle to HTML5, however:
| Mozilla, the open-source developer of Firefox,
| doesn't support H.264 because it's a
| proprietary codec. (Mozilla and others in the
| open-source community prefer Ogg Theora. And
| Google is looking to buy On2, the company that
| owns yet another proprietary video codec.)

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
