Submission + - FFmpeg announces high-performance WebM decoder (multimedia.cx)

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 and optimization techniques used. Currently it's only fully optimized on x86, but ARM and PowerPC optimizations are next in line for development.
