I hope everybody had a safe trip back home after Vancouver.

As you all know, we need to make progress regarding the selection of the
MTI video codec. The following are some of the alternatives we have on
the table:

 1. All entities MUST support H.264
 2. All entities MUST support VP8
 3. All entities MUST support both H.264 and VP8
 4. Browsers MUST support both H.264 and VP8
 5. All entities MUST support either H.264 or VP8
 6. All entities MUST support H.261
 7. There is no MTI video codec

If you want the group to consider additional alternatives to the ones
above, please let the group know within the following *two weeks*. At
that point, the chairs will be listing all the received alternatives and
proposing a process to select one among them.

Please, send your proposals in an email to the list. You do not need to
write a draft; just send the text you would like to see in the final
document regarding video codecs.
