Intel may offer hardware acceleration for Google WebM video format

Posted on Friday, May 28 2010 @ 20:08:51 CEST by

Intel revealed it's considering to offer hardware-based acceleration for Google's new WebM video file format in its Atom-based TV chips if the format gains popularity.
Google last week announced the high-definition WebM video file format to deliver high-quality Web video to multiple devices including TV sets and handhelds. WebM files will include video streams compressed with the open-source VP8 video codec, which was acquired by Google when it bought On2 Technologies in February.

"Just like we did with other codecs like MPEG2, H.264 & VC1, if VP8 establishes itself in the Smart TV space, we will add it to our [hardware] decoders," said Wilfred Martis, general manager for retail consumer electronics at Intel's Digital Home Group.
