Multimedia, AV "When I started working on a no-DRM, open-standards-based solution for distributing high-definition video on fixed media ('Lib-Ray'), I naturally thought of Theora, because it was developed as a free software project. Several people have suggested, though, that the VP8 codec would be a better fit for my application. This month, I've finally gotten the necessary vpxtools and mkvtoolnix packages installed on my Debian system, and so I'm having a first-look at VP8. The results are very promising, though the tools are somewhat finicky."

Based on that, it can't do it. But I guess you mean this can be fixed with software? Put another way, could you do it?


I do not know if the people behind RPi have managed to fix the issue, but when I was still lurking around the forums the issue with VP8 decoding was that it was not implemented; it was all done in software. I assume that that 720p20 mentioned there is based on software-decoding.

EDIT: I cannot find any suitable WebM-video to download anywhere to test on my ARM-devices. Urgh.
