Top Tech companies joins to create new open-source video format ..One good news for all the tech lovers, geeks and the developers soon a open source video format is going to publish in the market.Top companies like Amazon,Intel,Google,Microsoft, Mozilla and Netflix, are forming the Alliance For Open Media to create an open-source, royalty-free video format, The alliance aims to make a video codec designed for high-quality streaming across a variety of devices.

 

The new format, which has yet to be named, could make it easier for web giants to move away from Adobe Flash, which, despite recent calls for its death, has stubbornly endured.

It will be designed specifically for delivering streaming video over the web with the aim of making it suitable for low-powered devices. It will also support copy protection!

According to a blog post by Mozilla, the open-source codec will be released under the Apache 2.0 license.

What is Apache License 2.0?

It specifically includes the use of all relevant patents and allows code covered by the license to be used within commercial and proprietary projects.

Advantages :

Adobe Flash was the standard for high quality video playback for a number of years thanks to the fact that it didn’t require much computer power to run well. Now it’s seen as a serious security hazard and a calamity on the internet. Both Chrome and Firefox have plugins to block Flash by default.

A page on the Alliance’s site lists the main goals for this new format. The Alliance wants to create something that can deliver, high-quality real time streaming that work on virtually any device. It also wants the codec to work for both commercial and user-generated content.

What is done already?

Google already created a format called VP10; Mozilla has one called Daala; and Cisco recently released one called Thor.So,the confusion and repetition might happen!

Mozilla platform engineer lead David Bryant :

“As resolutions and framerates increase, the need for more advanced codecs with ever-better compression ratios will only grow,” Mozilla platform engineer lead David Bryant writes. “We believe that Daala, Cisco’s Thor, and Google’s VP10 combine to form an excellent basis for a truly world-class royalty-free codec.”

Important point :

Apple and Facebook are conspicuously absent from the group!

Notably absent from the Alliance is Apple, which is reportedly trying to make its own content like Amazon and Netflix. Facebook, which is becoming increasingly video focused, is also a major drawback.
