Who the are we?

"We're Xiph.Org" Oh, you mean us, (Monty and Greg Maxwell)

What has happened in the past year?

  • In-browser playback, long promised, became a reality.
  • Firefox 3.5 shipped; HTML 5 with Ogg is a reality.
  • Cortado improvements
Cortado is not a stopgap, it's possibly the most capable solution right now. (Yes, it's java, we know)
  • Ogg Kate: Demo!
  • Browsers and browser plugins also started actually supporting seeking properly.
  • Promised encoder improvements shipped
Thusnelda shipped as Theora 1.1 with a completely refreshed sourcebase on encode and decode. Theora no longer has any code in common with original VP3 sourcebase. That wasn't exactly a goal, just a statement of where we've gotten to.

What is happening now

Current Ogg coverage

  • Ogg continues to be more of a reality than h264 (at least for web video, at least for now).
  • Native support: Firefox market share: 31%, Chrome: 5.28% Opera: 3.3%
  • Plugin Support: Safari (XiphQT) 5.2%, IE 6 and later (Silverlight*): ~the rest
  • Java support: Everyone— all the way back to Netscape 4!
(Share figures From Wikimedia[1])
  • More encoder improvements:
Ptalarbvorm development underway [2]
  • Vorbis surround optimization (development toward Ghost)
  • Ogg documentation, Ogg tutorials (combating misinformation)
  • Continued filter/plugin improvements
  • XiphQT and the DirectShow filters continue to be central to adoption/penetration.

What will happen in the next year

  • Ship Ptalarbvorm as Theora 1.2
  • Early Ghost demo? Some publicly visible demonstration of progress. (shipping, assuming research success, is years off)
  • Better *documentation*. Developers, developers, developers. And artists. And everyone else too.

Breakout, questions:

  • "Implementation questions"
  • "Usage questions"
  • "Google! Everyone Panic!"
