VP8 is >10x faster than VP9, while giving relatively close compression rate. In ffmpeg terminology, libvpx can do your coding job faster than libvpx-vp9 (which is default codec for webm format).
@alexcleac why was VP9 invented then?
@alexcleac That sounds wrong. h265 go I guess?
@gudenau h265 is as slow as vp9 as I tried. VP8 is a bit worse but way faster :)
@alexcleac Hmmm, I thought it was supposed to be the same speed as h264 or faster with better or greater quality.
Ehh, doesn't matter much as long as I can do 60Hz/2920x1080 real time. (Yay for GPU encoding hardware)
@gudenau unfortunately the best my hardware can do is h264... But it is generally available pretty much everywhere, and I want more compression 😂
