Google's VP9 video codec nearly done; YouTube will use it

Google's VP9 video codec nearly done; YouTube will use it | The Machinimatographer | Scoop.it

One of the biggest video sites on the Net will use Google's next-generation video compression technology after it's fully defined on June 17.

 

The VP9 bitstream definition, which describes how video is compressed into a stream of data so it can be transmitted efficiently over a network, has been in beta testing for a week, said Matt Frost, senior business product manager for the WebM Project.

 

Paul Wilkins, a Google codec engineer, detailed the final schedule for the VP9 bitstream definition Thursday in a mailing list post.

 

WebM will be updated to accommodate the new video codec and a new audio codec called Opus, too, said another Google employee, Lou Quillio.
