Default Google funding ARM optimised version of Theora

From http://www.h-online.com/open/news/it...ra-975381.html

Quote:
Google is funding development of Theorarm, a Theora video decoder for ARM processors. The funding, in the form of a grant, has allowed Robin Watts, the UK based Theorarm developer, to release the previously GPL licensed project under the same BSD license as other Theora code.

Well they need Theora for their mobile devices so that they do not depend on Adobe. Actually Flash is so bloated that even thinking of running it on ARM makes me laugh. It is as simple as that. They are not doing it out of goodness of their heart.

Interesting that they are funding the ARM port of Theora, and open-sourcing the VP8 codec.

Interesting times ahead in mobile/web video. Wonder how youtube.com will look in a year.

... and they're including Adobe Flash in the code of Google Chrome.
