Episode 2 – Media Codes: WebM vs. H.264

In this podcast I discuss some of the different codec technologies I’ve used for audio and video (which include mpeg1, mp3, mpeg2, mpeg4, h.264; and maybe Theora soon and WebM eventually) for this oggcast, my podcast and more, why I prefer open standards like Vorbis and Theora, and why it’s good that Google open-sorced the VP8 codec (which they are packaging with the Matroska container format and the Vorbis audio codec in order to create the WebM media standard).
