An anonymous reader writes “Three FFmpeg developers — Ronald Bultje, David Conrad, and x264 developer Jason Garrett-Glaser — have written the first independent, free implementation of a VP8 video decoder. Benchmarks show that it’s as much as 65% faster than Google’s official libvpx. The announcement also gives a taste of what went into the development process, as well as the optimization techniques used. Currently it’s only fully optimized on x86, but ARM and PowerPC optimizations are next in line for development.”
