FFmpeg 2.1 (codenamed "Fourier") was tagged Sunday and with it comes a whole lot of improvements to the popular open-source multimedia encoder/decoder software. There's VP9 and H.265 / HEVC decoding and a whole lot more!
Among the highlights for FFmpeg 2.1 include RTMP seek support, support for reading EXIF meta-data in JPEG images, Opus support in Matroska, lossless and alpha support for the WebP
decoder, SFTP protocol support, a native VP9 decoder
, a DPX parser, PulseAudio output device support, a ReplayGain scanner, enhanced ER AAC ELD decoding (Low-Delay AAC), H.265 / HEVC decoder
(High Efficiency Video Coding), and Linux frame-buffer output device support.
As shown via the change-log
there's also smaller improvements like aecho and compand filters and improvements to existing decoders.
