OMS Video

OMS Video is an open, royalty-free video compression specification under development by Sun Microsystems's Open Media Commons as part of the Open Media Stack. It defines a video decoder and the associated bitstream syntax.[1] It is intended for delivery, storage and playback of video streams.

It was announced on April 11, 2008. The latest version of OMS Video Specification is 0.91, released on June 9, 2009.[1]

OMS Video design

OMS Video is based on an updated version of the H.261 codec as some of the patents on it have now expired.[2] Vorbis is planned for use as the audio codec.[3]
