FFmpeg VP9 Decoder Claims To Be The World's Fastest
A new video codec decoder for Google's VP9 open video codec that's built around FFmpeg is claiming to be the fastest VP9 decoder.
TheFFvp9 decoder is written from scratch for FFmpeg and aims to be a fast, free, community-developed implementation similar to ffvp8. FFvp9 claims to be faster than the libvpx-based decoder by 25~50% on a variety of machines and there's also significant improvements too in multi-threaded performance.
To learn more about the FFvp9 decoder that was written by Ronald Bultje and Clément Bœsch, read this weekend's blog post by Bultje. Update: It's also worth pointing out that FFmpeg's VP8 decoder was/is also faster than Google's own VP8 video decoder.
