VP8

Acronym:True Motion VP8

True Motion VP8 is video compression codec created by On2 Technologies as the successor for VP7. No external tests were performed on VP8 prior to Google's acquistion of On2 in 2010, but subsequent tests reveal a quality almost equivalent to H.264 commercial codecs. Has been modified and reintroduced as the WebM open-source codec by Google. (See http://www.streamingmedia.com/Articles/ReadArticle.aspx?ArticleID=65300)
