Daala is the current working name of a next generation video codec. The effort is a collaboration between Mozilla Foundation, Xiph.Org Foundation and other contributors.

The goal of the project is to provide a free to implement, use and distribute digital media format and reference implementation with technical performance superior to h.265.

The development suffered at the end of 2012 due to the developers being involved in short term Opus-related activities. The availability of VP9 since January 2013 also may influence the amount of resources being allotted to Daala.
