I can understand the logic behind not wanting any new input before the meeting, but at the same time we did postpone this discussion one meeting cycle on request by Serge [1]. In his request Serge stated that "Google understands that concerns have been raised within the IETF RTCWEB WG in regards to VP8 IPR." and "We hereby commit to addressing this by the next IETF meeting in Orlando. Our  proposal will address prevalent IPR issues."

I have seen no such input yet, and if no new input is allowed, it seems like we will have the same discussion we postponed last time (all inputs look more or less unchanged to me). Is this the plan? Have the chairs reached out to Google to check the status (perhaps the IPR related things did encounter some delay, but will be ready shortly after the meeting)?

I hope everyone, especially Google, now have provided whatever input they have into the Video Codec discussion and selection. It is important that everyone has the possibility to evaluate the input in good time prior to the meeting. It is especially important if one might require legal or other support when evaluating the proposals or additional information, which might apply for IPR, as an example.

To be extremely blunt, we don't want anyone revealing new input material during the presentations in Orlando. These presentations is only intended to provide a summary of the most important aspects from the proponents side.
