Hi All,

as https://trac.xiph.org/browser/experimental/derf/theora-ptalarbvorm goes
I'd like to share
one idea  on features to improve market penetration and  the acceptance of
theora codec.

there is a market - online web games.
but still most of the games are quite primitive as their expressive means
are not well developed.
rich interactive 3D rendering is not easy to make with flash and friends.

And for most of those games low latency video will be a real solution to add
extra life.

and there are approaches to achieve such modes


I did not test current theora on ability to provide low latency streaming.
Still few ideas like "Periodic intra refresh" ( from link above  ) might
improve the situation.

Now then, when it is in, it is easy to imagine someone sitting and pressing
keyboard with 3D game screen changing ( which is rendered on server ).

The penetration for theora ( as free codec compared to H.264 ( which is free
for free sites till some date in future but not otherwise )) might  really
