    It was created by one company who sold the patents and source to Google who have now tweaked it and released it as free. This does not make it a standard.

    Unless someone can show evidence that WebM provides higher quality for lower bit rate or easier coding/decoding then this is just politicking/marketing.

    VP8 is the video codec used. It has very similar compression ratio to H.264.
