WebP is not standard either. But it doesn't matter. Both APNG and WebP are valid formats that can be used on the web.
Why should anyone care anymore what W3C says about anything? They sold out, they want a web riddled with DRM...

This thread: TL;DR...
Will they ever support VDPAU in linux?
DRM in movies and TV shows that I buy, or pay a subscription fee for I should be able to copy and save for my own use as if it was a VCR. You might think that well you can't just give it out for free after it's released, and then I say, "Have you ever been to a library?"
Really what I'm hoping for is some sort of crazy better than everything else to fly out of Xiph like Opus, but that's just me personally, and I just like the guys over there.
Sorry this is a double post but....

How can it be a mess if nvidia's closed source is THE reference for it?

The thing is: we have HTML5 to watch videos in web browsers, but those are not being decoded directly by hardware, which means more cpu usage -> more battery usage. If they really want to improve linux users' experience, they SHOULD support VDPAU/VAAPI.
