http://stream0.org

Spending the last two days at the Open Video Conference has been a great experience, lots of interesting speakers and I've learned a few things.

Is OGG Theora Still A Viable Codec?

http://www.madpenguin.org

Don’t misunderstand me, as I’m not preaching the value of proprietary codecs.

Restricted Codecs Mess in Linux

http://www.madpenguin.org

here are a number of newcomers who migrate to Linux and then find themselves at ends with the confusion regarding restricted formats and codecs in the US.
