Technology Bakeoff: VP8 vs. H.264

You've heard all the noise about VP8, but how does it really compare to H.264? On November 2nd, at the Streaming Media West show in LA, Jan Ozer will present a hands-on demonstration comparing quality, encoding speed, and playback requirements of both codecs. Jan's presentation will also detail access to VP8 encoding from within live and on-demand encoding tools, the availability of hardware playback acceleration, and features like adaptive streaming. The session will also review VP8 usage by YouTube and other websites.
