Here are some copies of the most
common video compression standards.
Note: In order to avoid copyright problems, this page
contains only links to the latest working drafts of the ITU-T Recommendations or
MPEG standards, and not the ratified version itself. I believe that those
working drafts and the ratified versions are technically identical and differ only in the
cover page, but I may be wrong. In some cases, I added corrigenda or other
useful information into the PDF file.
