Submission + - FFmpeg's VP9 Decoder Faster Than Google's Decoder (

An anonymous reader writes: A VP9 video decoder written for FFmpeg, FFvp9, now holds the title of being the world's fastest VP9 video decoder. FFvp9 is faster than Google's de facto VP9 decoder found in libvpx, but this doesn't come as too much of a surprise given that FFmpeg also produced a faster VP8 video decoder than Google a few years back with both single and multi-threaded performance.

Wasn't there something about a PASCAL programmer knowing the value of everything and the Wirth of nothing?
