    That's great news, finally some serious competition against HEVC.

    Maybe it's me but while this new codec (yay ANOTHER codec requiring new hardware...) is going to be free, I can see hevc being made free or really cheap to ensure they get backing from the tv companies etc like samsung, lg etc, which funnily enough aren't mentioned as being in this group. This will cause the situation where all these companies like amazon, netflix and even youtube will need to support hevc for their tv apps (they're not going to give up on users just for a codec) which will mean that they'll just use it everywhere...


    Do I like the idea of a single format that everyone supports, yes, do I feel we need YET ANOTHER codec that will likely need new codecs/hardware to run on pc/tv's etc, not so much.
