One day, I saw Suxen drol create a new page on the MultimediaWiki discussing something called the Peak codec. I was about to scold him for not uploading and linking to samples for this codec until I read closer. The Peak codec seems to refer to a theoretical best possible codec. Could such a beast really exist?
Based on everything I’ve read, perhaps On2’s VP8 is the Peak codec of lore: All things to all people.
