Flash, Google, VP8, and the future of internet video

Where does x264 fit in all this? H.264 is certainly not going away, not for quite a while. In most sane parts of the world, software patents are a non-issue. But in the end, none of it matters for x264: we will continue our quest to create the best video compression software on Earth. Unlike Adobe, we don’t sit complacent when we are the best; we keep trying to become better. We add new features, improve compression, support new platforms, improve performance, and there’s far more to come. We don’t care that many H.264 encoders are so bad that they can be beaten by Theora or Xvid. We don’t care if VP8 comes out; that’s just another encoder to beat. We are here to ensure that the best choice is always free software by constantly making free software better.

The Exam Period, She Begins!

So for the next couple of weeks, I get to be a hermit.

I’m not sure if this makes me happy or not – what I do know is that I’ll probably be cooped up inside my room, dilligently studying for whatever exam I have, madly cramming stuff into my head in the hope that at least some of it’ll stick.


Whether that’ll work or not is anyone’s guess, but I might as well try.

On the flipside, I’ll have plenty of time to sleep. No more early mornings, except to post the damn Mactalk.com.au news on Mondays and Fridays.

Another plus is the fact that I’ll have plenty of time to procrastinate. Which means more awesome blog posts to follow!

This post part of Blogtober 2009. It’s almost funny to think that I’ve blogged something every day of the month – even scarier to think that I’m more than halfway there!
