    According to Wikipedia, VDPAU has been in Mess since 8.0 for graphics cards that utilise Gallium3D and a lot of other programs use it including vlc, xbmc, gstreamer, flash and a couple others. Seriously, can you not Google first?
    How can it be a mess if nvidia's closed source is THE reference for it?

    AFAIK (I'm not a dev), VLC implementation is really bad, and recent. Mplayer, OTOH, works great with it. Even flash works OK for me with the FOSS radeon driver...

    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.

    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.

    Bullshit. You've been brainwashed by the copyright mafia. Since when did DRM become an inevitable force of nature that we just have to accept?

    DRM is inherently user-hostile, it takes away the control of your own hardware from you, the owner of the hardware. I get all the "premium content" I need without ever worrying about DRM. If something isn't available DRM-free, I won't be paying a cent for it.

    WebP is not standard either. But it doesn't matter. Both APNG and WebP are valid formats that can be used on the web.

    WebP is not "standard" either. But it doesn't matter. W3C is taking hand-off approach to the whole issue: "use whatever graphical formats you want, as long as your browser supports it".

    As for libpng authors, in open source world you can take the software and extend/fork it without asking original authors for permission/approval to do so.

    Original authors' opinion is just that, an opinion.
