Theora is improved to the point that it's a viable competitor in the video codec world. Some people would block it, but as it gets better, and currently with Mozilla and Google behind implementing open-source browser standards, there's hope here


It doesn't look to bad actually. I think the complaints are mostly with how it handles the "motion vectors", which on different image structures sometimes cause macro-blocking artifacts. It's somewhat noticeable at higher resolutions, but it's not like it can be fixed at the cost rebuilding the code from scratch and implementing some other stuff from what I have heard. The only other problem that plagues Theora is there is no real hardware decoding right now. It's going to take some time to mature and that's the key to achieving widespread usage of it. Thusnelda is first the step though.

I'm not sure exactly how to read you here. Do you mean that (from what you've heard) Theora will have trouble with motion vector blocking artifacts and there's no hope for improvement on this issue without a complete rebuild of the code? Or do you mean that there IS hope to improve this, without having to completely rebuild the code?
