    Thats a name I have not thought about in a long time. I'm pretty sure back in the day I was converting music using a Fraunhofer codec that was pretty good but not heard of them since.

    I'm excited about this because 265 was a huge game changer for me. Lets hope the licensing model affords the same freedom and uptake as previous codecs such as their mp3 onward.

    I think the name you're looking for is MP3.... :-)

    Re: Fraunhofer HHI releases state-of-the-art H.266/VVC codec

    The interesting thing is that Apple, Intel, Microsoft, and virtually every major tech company is also in the "Alliance for Open Media" group that is developing and supporting the open, royalty-free AV1 codec. Google is the major force behind that one since their VP10 codec was rolled into AV1 as the base.

    Will be interesting to see which one becomes more popular. Personally, I'd like to see open codecs become the mainstream for once.

    AV1 is what you are looking for, x266 won't matter.

    ofc not, the "example" they used that x265 4k 90min video uses 10GB shows that they are talking about streaming quality, not offline bitrates/quality

    Bingo.

    H.265 is not used by the internet because the licensing around it imploded into factions demanding more money.

    H.266 will very likely suffer the same fate and be limited to broadcast video not internet streaming services.

    AV1 is the future internet codec and work on AV2 has already begun.
