TechTok: WebRTC Codec Wars- Rebooted

techtoksJust when we thought we were done with the video codec wars in WebRTC – we found out we’re only just beginning.

In the past several weeks we’ve seen the names Thor, Daala, VP9 and H.265 thrown in the news as potential candidates to replace our current generation of video codecs. How is that going to play out, and where are we headed with all this?

We can’t be sure but we think Tsahi Levent-Levi can make a few educated guesses about it.

Join TokBox and Tsahi to discuss the power plays of the video coding industry.  You can find out more about the event and register to attend here.
