Video technology company Digital Rapids and online video platform Brightcove have become the latest companies to announce that they are supporting the WebM open web media project and will provide support for the forthcoming VP8 video compression technology promoted by Google.
Google is open sourcing the VP8 codec, which is optimized for web video, and contributing it to the project under a royalty-free licence. The internet giant acquired VP8 from On2 Technologies, the video compression specialist it acquired earlier this year.
Brightcove said it would provide H.264 and WebM as standard encoding options for Adobe Flash and HTML5 video services.
