Detailed Description

libtheora 1.1 incorporates a substantially improved encoder, codenamed 'Thusnelda'.

Over the last year, Mony has produced a series of detailed reports describing the Thusnelda improvements as they have been developed:

Benefit to Fedora

A lot of positive momentum has been building around open video on the web. With this feature, Fedora becomes more attractive as a platform for producing video content in open formats.


libtheora needs to be updated. All video-encoding applications that support theora will transparently benefit from the improvements in Thusnelda.

How To Test

Use a video-encoding application to produce theora-encoded content. Compare the quality with content produced with libtheora 1.0 and notice the improved quality.

User Experience



Contingency Plan

Revert to libtheora 1.0.
