  >> 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.

Ogg Kate: Demo!

Browsers and browser plugins also starteda ctually supporting seeking properly.

> Promised encoder improvements shipped

Thusnelda shipped as Theora 1.1 with a completely refreshed sourcebase on encode and decode. Theor ano 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 realiy 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!

(Figures From Wikipedia)

> More encoder improvements

Ptalarbvorm development underway http://svn.xiph.org/experimental/derf/theora-ptalarbvorm/

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. That will continue to be true for the forseeable future.

>>> What will happen in the next year

Ship Ptalarbvorm as Theora 1.2

Early Ghost demo? Some publicly visible demonstration of progress. (shipping, assuming reasearch success, is years off)

Better *documentation*. Developers, developers, developers. And artists. And everyone else too.

>>> Breakout, questions:

"How can I help?"


"Implementation questions"

"Usage questions"

"Google! Everyone Panic!"
