    All Daala would really need is hardware support from Intel. Then it'd be a slam dunk.

      Guys, slow down. Daala is still deep in the research phase. Not even the creators themselves know how the final Daala bitstream will look like or what technologies it will use.

      It'll take at least a year, probably more, before Daala will become something.

      But here you are, talking about hardware decoders. Let me give you some perspective - The HEVC format was formally released in April 2013. But we're only now, two years later, getting hardware decoders.

        It's too late for VP9, but if there's gonna be a VP10, Google shouldn't develop it by themselves. They should work on the format with someone like IETF, so that libvpx bugs won't become part of the format, so that there will be a formal specification, so that it won't be a proprietary Google format but a truly open standard.

        Daala is still some time away, VP9 I've described above, the HEVC licensing situation is a mess due to the new patent pool... That means h264 will be with us for quite some time.
        Well, unlike Microsoft, Google controls content distribution through YouTube. Just YouTube using VP9 is already big.

        If anyone wants to build a Free software including some sort of video support, VP9 is a good choice because it's both patent-"free" (unlike VC1 and h264) and well supported by hardware.

          It is big, but it's still just one site. What about Netflix? They're also extremely big. What about Hulu? Amazon? Broadcast network's or cable channel's own streaming sites? Then, what about disc formats? Microsoft got VC1 into Blu-ray, did Google even try getting VP9 into UHD? The next disc format (if there will even be one)?

          Is Google actively working with any standards organization, be it SMPTE, ITU, IETF? Also, where are competing implementations of encoders? And what about professional video editors or authoring tools, do any of them work with VP9?

          You see, there's quite a bit more than Youtube out there.
