This package contains utilities around the vp8 codec sdk.
WebM is an open, royalty-free, media file format designed for the web.
WebM defines the file container structure, video and audio formats.
WebM files consist of video streams compressed with the VP8 video codec
and audio streams compressed with the Vorbis audio codec.
The WebM file structure is based on the Matroska container.

2018-03-06 - adrian@suse.de
- update to version 1.7.0
This release focused on high bit depth performance (10/12 bit) and vp9
encoding improvements.
- Upgrading:
This release is ABI incompatible due to new vp9 encoder features.
Frame parallel decoding for vp9 has been removed.
- Enhancements:
vp9 encoding supports additional threads with --row-mt. This can be greater
than the number of tiles.
Two new vp9 encoder options have been added:
- -corpus-complexity
- -tune-content=film
Additional tooling for respecting the vp9 "level" profiles has been added.
- Bug fixes:
A variety of fuzzing issues.
vp8 threading fix for ARM.
Codec control VP9_SET_SKIP_LOOP_FILTER fixed.
Reject invalid multi resolution configurations.
- drop obsolete CVE-2017-13194.patch
- switch to git service since no tar ball at the old place anymore
- so name increase to 5
- use gnu99 for ppc
2018-03-02 - idonmez@suse.com
- Enable VP9 10bit encoding support boo#1083537
2018-01-18 - Adrian Schröter <adrian@suse.de>
- cleanup traces for testing, we don't have the >400MB test data here
2018-01-18 - Adrian Schröter <adrian@suse.de>
- Fix OOB caused by odd frame width with patch from android
Adding patch CVE-2017-13194.patch (CVE-2017-13194)
- this changelog entry also contains the new scheme with full name
and "umlaut" to test which tools may break with it in our distro.

- limit maximum size to 8K Fulldome resolution to avoid
DoS attacks. CVE-2017-0641 boo#1056539
2017-03-03 - tchvatal@suse.com
- Version update to 1.6.1:
* Improvements on the VP9 speed of encoding and decoding
* Various fixes found by fuzzing
2017-01-01 - jengelh@inai.de
- Summary updates
2016-09-07 - tchvatal@suse.com
- Ensure the enable vp8 vp9 postproc and multithread are always on
- Enable verbose build
- Add switches to be able to build chromium:
* --enable-experimental --enable-spatial-svc
2016-08-12 - jengelh@inai.de
- Rename unfitting macro name "soname"; there is no SONAME here,
just the version.
2016-08-11 - olaf@aepfle.de
- Update to version 1.6.0
This release improves upon the VP9 encoder and speeds up the encoding and
decoding processes.
- Enhancement:
A core focus has been performance for low end Intel processors. SSSE3
instructions such as 'pshufb' have been avoided and instructions have been
reordered to better accommodate the more constrained pipelines.
As a result, devices based on Celeron processors have seen substantial
decoding improvements. From Indian Runner Duck to Javan Whistling Duck,
decoding speed improved between 10 and 30%. Between Javan Whistling Duck
and Khaki Campbell Duck, it improved another 10 to 15%.
While Celeron benefited most, Core-i5 also improved 5% and 10% between the
respective releases.
Realtime performance for WebRTC for both speed and quality has received a
lot of attention.
- Bug Fixes:
A number of fuzzing issues, found variously by Mozilla, Chromium and others,
have been fixed and we strongly recommend updating.
- Remove libvpx-pkgconfig-version.patch
