I am forwarding the following on behalf of Hervé.  You can consider this
also a +1 from me for the proposal, for what it's worth:

> Proposal for MTI video codec: All entities MUST support Theora.
> 
> Theora was derived from VP3 (a codec from 2000).
> Theora bitstream format freeze in June 2004.
> 
> Theora documentation (including link to spec pdf) : http://theora.org/doc/
> 
> If you want to try out the codec, rather than write your own from scratch, please consider using the reference implementation's latest sources (rather than version 1.1) : http://git.xiph.org/?p=mirrors/theora.git
> 
> There have been several commercial products that apparently weren't sued into bankruptcy: http://wiki.xiph.org/Games_that_use_Theora
> 
> No license fees are owed to Xiph for implementation.
>
