Google Starts Pushing Out VP10 Open-Source Code Into Libvpx
While VP9 still has a lot of life left to it and VP10 won't be official for a while, based upon information reported by Google last September when confirming the start of VP10 development, there's now the start of VP10 work within the libvpx codec SDK.
Google engineers working on VP10 have started pushing code into the public libvpx repository where VP8 and VP9 video encoding support resides.
For now with this code, the VP10 support is disabled by default but hidden behind a --enable-vp10 compile-time flag.
VP10 continues to be developed as a next-generation, royalty-free codec alongside the Daala project backed by Xiph.Org and Mozilla while last week Cisco announced their Thor video codec initiative. More information on the VP10 video format as it becomes available.
