Google said they were pulling H.264 support for their own WebM (even though they haven't yet).

Firefox on Mobile does support the H.264 though.

Will this mean we can save video files in this and save space over current standards?
post #23 of 30
working with a cable company, this news does not excite me. freeing up more bandwidth is only going to give the false sense of space for them to cram more and more streams in , exacerbating the issue of "tiling" that we see now with mpeg2 and mpeg 4 streams. You have enough bandwidth per "channel" to have 2 comfortable sized HD streams in them with enough room for bursty scenes of lots of data. Most providers try to cram 3 or more streams in the same space now and it looks awful. If they think they can sell you on 1080p streaming thanks to ever better compression techniques then they will but they will also be driven to provide "MORE MORE MORE" than their competitors and thusly will over stuff the free space they just created by adopting the new standard. I'm sure for the mobile space this may be an awesome wave of the future, but as far as traditional netflix-esque and video provider type streaming goes this will only make things worse. The tech is good, what the people in charge of using that tech will do with it, will make you hate it

So what does this mean? You get a 1080p video which is smaller in size but offers the same quality, hence making it easier to stream using a slow connection?

So does this mean that Netflix can stream higher quality video within the same envelop?

I can see companies lowering their caps, and finding a reason for it... somehow.

Maybe this will help the US's poor internet bandwidth?

Unfortunately you are probably correct, or they will at least become stagnate. However, even if they lower the cap by 25% and this codec offers a 50% smaller bandwidth requirement we still net gain 25% effective capacity, for video. I remember a Verizon spokesmen at CES a few years back saying the industry needed this to ensure all customers had access to bandwith. It sounded like a lame excuse then, and still does, but efficiency is typically better in the long run regardless.

I just did some rough maths. If this can truely offer a 50% decrease in the required bandwidth requirement, then a 1440p stream would require roughly 12% less bandwidth than a current 1080p stream. This is all assuming that the codec's efficiency scales in a linear fashion of course. With that however, more companies will likely be willing to consider increasing higher resolution streams of their content. 2k and 4k streams sounds much more reasonable for those new, uber-expensive, TVs that were showcased so much at this year's CES.

The hope is that, through improved compression techniques, H.265 will enable publishers to stream 1080p video with about half as many bits as required today.

Some tech just doesnt mature, let alone progress!
