Most on-topic is probably the licensing issue: I like the GPLv3, but many BSD 
users don't like it for the same reasons.

I don't want to publish comprehensive details about my (video format) idea 
until I have the format defined in a forward-compatible way. AS I am fantasy 
land, I think that people will try implementing incompatible versions as soon 
as it's published. The risk is that may happen anyway if my format is not "good 

I haven't even done testing to find out how well compression is performed. 
Second-Worst case (mono white noise), I estimate that loss-less compression 
will only be able to compress frame changes to ~25% of the original frame size. 
Lossy compression will be a simple averaging of nearby pixels for (multiples 
of) ~4:1 compression. Mpeg is supposed to get up to 300:1.

TL;DR: If you have to ask what the point is, it is probably off-topic and I can 
shut-up now.
