Hap is a codec for fast video playback I developed for Vidvox. Everything is open-source, including the codec and example code to get it running in third-party applications.

There’s an article and installer over on their site.

    Hi Tom,
    I’m super excited about Hap! Its great to finally have a nice and speedy codec that everyone can use. I’m wondering if it will ever be cross platform? Considering your using OpenGL it would be great to have hap running across Linux and Windows as well. Or are there underlying technologies that make this not possible?
    Best wishes,

    Windows is in progress. There is no reason it couldn’t be supported by libavcodec/ffmpeg if someone did the work.
