'Theora' is Xiph.Org's first publicly released video codec, intended for use within the Ogg's project's Ogg multimedia streaming system. It is derived directly from the VP3 codec; currently the two are nearly identical, varying only in encapsulating decoder tables in the bitstream headers, although substantial changes and improvements may be expected in the future.
