Google announces WebP and WebM new image and video formats: more efficient compression
posted by Victor H. / May 15, 2013, 12:24 PM
The new WebP format could be a huge relief for graphic-intensive websites and will make loading them faster, and the end user experience ultimately better.
Additionally, Google has also unveiled a new video codec, the webM VP9 that is 63% smaller than H.264. It still delivers the same quality at the lower bitrates. That is huge news for those who consume a lot of video on their mobile devices, and of course it will come to YouTube.

Wow, I did not see that coming! But I guess it all makes sense now- if Google creates standards that people will have to use to bring down their cost then hardware and software manufactures will have to implement them and Google collects a licencing fee. With over 900 million activations guess Wp and Mp become instant standards.

No, no licencing fee. They should have put that in the article, since not everyone was watching the announcement.
