Which video encoding has the best balance between compression efficiency and speed?
It reduces color banding and improves compression efficiency a little. Why would you NOT want to use it?
kek, are they still in business?
The pdf you linked isn't saying anything, it just shows some boxes and says some buzzwords.
10bit may improve compression of a bit but it's also because you're working on bigger files so you have higher margin
I have one of these
I put Kodi on it and it runs HEVC 1080p flawlessly but lags like hell when playing h264 10 bit stuff.
>The pdf you linked isn't saying anything, it just shows some boxes and says some buzzwords.
Are you retarded?
This is a bigger problem for 10-bit HEVC. Not so much for 10-bit H264 especially with modern android smartphones. Yeah hardware decoding saves battery life but I think it's exaggerated. Software decoding for 10-bit H264 and 10-bit HEVC exists though 10-bit HEVC tends to overheat almost all android smartphones.
Let's not kid ourselves, VP9 encoding sucks ass on the GPU. Yeah it's fast but the file sizes are huge thus negating the improved compression efficiency claimed over h264.
cpu encoding or go bust.
>Low bitrate H265 looks like garbage compared to using a little more with H264.
The video codec is still relatively new, it needs time to be optimized and improved. The latest x265 encoder is rumoured to hit ~35% better compression efficiency over the latest x264 encoder. Still not 50% better but we'll get there... eventually.
Youtube uses it so it's not really a meme, at least for video streaming websites. Not like they had much choice. It was either use VP9 or become a hevc cuck and pay them that 0.5% royalty fee thing.
maybe family. But it's always good to upgrade to keep up with emerging tech at least every 4 years. I'm not even telling you to shell out 800 bucks for an s6 edge. The 2nd gen moto e can be found for 60 bucks sometimes yet it features a quad-core a53 cpu at 1.2 ghz which is more than enough for at least 720p 10bit 720p.
I really want to upgrade, but no phone that is not completely overpriced matches my criteria :(
> 2GB RAM or more
>at least 720p
>good cyanogenmod support
Might get an LG G4 when it becomes a bit cheaper.
For a company as large as youtube it would have meant millions in royalty fees which they can't afford.
Why do you think they launched youtube red as well? Google hasn't really generated that much money from youtube.
Even IF they could afford paying the fees, why would they when VP9 is about 90% as good as HEVC?
Face it, VP9 shit all over hevc and will soon be adopted by more streaming websites. Yeah it takes a little longer to encode but you don't have to pay that gay royalty fee.
Though to be fair, hevc is still better than vp9 but only for home use.
>Typing against a flat surface that doesn't have any give or tactility causes far more strain for me than using my Droid 4 keyboard.
I can't explain that shit, maybe you have mutated thumbs or something. I regularly tap out long worded responses on 4chins only using my touchscreen keyboard and I only get thumb strain if I type more than ~5 paragraphs at a time.
It doesn't make their battery lives longer.
The only reason they're removing keyboard is because Joe Pleb wants a fuckhuge 2mm thin slab to browse facebook on and smear on his face. Two things have to go when you make it fucking huge and super thin: keyboards, and battery space. Especially with bigger screens draining more power.
Give me a sane sized phone with an actual input device and space for a battery that isn't a joke.
>It doesn't make their battery lives longer.
Not same anon but it literally does. Adding a physical keyboard means that for the same dimensions a phone will have a 2,000 mAh instead of a 2,800 mAh one. Keyboards take up space, you can't get around that fact.
If you like physical keyboards so god dam much then go suck lelberry's cock and buy their priv meme.
No because as soon as people notice "remove keyboard -> more battery" they also notice "remove keyboard -> MOAR THIN" and then it just ends up wafer thin with still no battery, because Joe Pleb doesn't use his phone for anything more than Facebook.
We have a fuckton of phones with 3,000+ mAh batteries, I have no idea why you keep spouting the thinness meme. Apple is in charge of making phones paper thin to the point where they bend in your pocket but most android manufacturers don't do that.
I still think the Android ones are too thin. Admittedly, them being thicker isn't comfortable with the screens also being so huge, but my suggestion would be to make the screens less huge.
Don't bother reading that. At the time Ateme was trying to sell 10bit HW decoders for TV broadcast. Of course they'll tell you it's better that whatever you have now ant that you must buy it.
Because of GPU jews. 10-bit hardware decoding for H264 still does not exist except in some APUs.
In addition to this, most encoders are dumb asses who use an arbitrary video bitrate instead of a crf value, use aac instead of opus, and sometimes even bloat their encodes to hell with flac audio streams.
That doesn't mean 10 bit h264 isn't better compared to 8 bit h264. Hardware decoding support is shit for 10-bit h264 but that does not mean 10 bit h264 is trash.
I've done many encodes and 10 bit h264 reduces color banding across all different kinds of bitrates and reduces the overall bitrate (using the same crf value) sometimes by up to 20% in some encodes.
Why you think the industry is still selling people 128 kbit/s MP3? because they've old licenses from the early 2000s old cheap licenses that they won't bother to replace and 128 kbit/s is small which saves a lot of bandwidth and storage for their servers and normies don't even give a fuck about quality anyway, that's why the industry is milking the shit outta them with frauds like iTunes and similar.
10-bit is superior from all points of view to 8-bit, there's a VERY SIMPLE way to confirm it. This:
1) Get a 500+ MB 1080p MP4 file (eg. any HorribleSubs 1080p file ever)
2) Get x264 10-bit and 8-bit ready
3) Change the CRF settings in order to aim to generate two 150 MB output file
4) Encode the raw file with both 10-bit and 8-bit x264
5) Compare visual quality
This will show how differently the two x264 versions work, how they affect the banding/sharpnes and everything. You'll notice the 10-bit output file looks a magniture better than the 8-bit, even if both files are the same size.
