Not sure how to completely parse this question, but I'll try:
* VP5 and VP6 are developed by On2, yes.
* On2 works feverishly to find niche markets that will pay for their
codecs. They are not especially widespread on the internet.

WMV3 is the hottest thing going in the Windows Media camp. It is also
known as WMV9 and is also soon to be known as VC-1 or VC-9 and is part
of the upcoming (so they say) HD-DVD standard (as opposed to Sony's
Blu-Ray which is supposed to support stock H.264).
