LEAD VP8 Encoder

The LEAD VP8 Encoder is a DirectShow filter for compressing and decompressing video data using the VP8 video standard. The VP8 standard was developed originally by On2, which was later acquired by Google. Google made the VP8 standard open and free of patent fees.

VP8 is a high quality video compression algorithm suited for all types of applications with different ranges of bit rates. The compressed video data can be stored inside MKV container files with the option of saving the file with or without the audio data. A popular form of MKV files with VP8 compression is the WebM file format, which is expected to become a popular interchange and video streaming file format.

NOTE: If you are using the encoder with a third-party software package, refer to your software documentation for information on how to access the encoder's property page(s). If you do not have an application for converting multimedia files, you can download M2Convert Pro from https://www.leadtools.com/utilities/m2solutions.

The compression options for the Encoder can be set manually through the encoder property page, or programmatically using the filter interface.
