It’s been clear for some time now that SVC Codecs are the future. Most of the biggest players (IBM Sametimes, Cisco, MS Skype, …) already use an SVC codec in their product, but what about webRTC? Well, things are getting together to support SVC in webRTC, and while everybody was waiting for VP9, it looks like VP8 will actually be one of the first SVC codec available!
Last week and today took place two major conferences from Microsoft: BUILD (all things MicroSoft) and Edge Web Summit, the later focussed on the Edge Browser. Several announcements about ORTC / WebRTC have been made, especially about video Codec support.
