Google today announced it has enabled its VP9 video codec by default on the Chrome dev channel. The addition means users of the company’s browser can expect to see the next-generation compression technology available out-of-the-box before the end of the year.

 

For users, the main advantage of VP9 is that it’s 50 percent more efficient than H.264, meaning that you’ll use half the bandwidth on average when watching a video on the Internet. Yet that doesn’t take H.265 into account, the successor to H.264 that offers comparable video quality at half the number of bits per second and also requires its implementers to pay patent royalties.

I'm experiencing juddering issues when playing certain, not all, MKV files with the H.264 passthrough option turned on on my iPad 3. The issue goes away if I extract the H.264 video track and put it in a mp4 container or if I ...
