Daala video compression
Daala is the code-name for a new video compression technology. The effort is a collaboration between Mozilla Foundation, Xiph.Org Foundation and other contributors.
The goal of the project is to provide a free to implement, use and distribute digital media format and reference implementation with technical performance superior to h.265.
If you're interested in our progress, or in helping out, development code is available from our working repository.
git clone https://git.xiph.org/daala.git
For overall progress and goals see daala notes on the Xiph.Org wiki.
For some of the ideas we've worked on, see Tim's presentation slides, "An Introduction to Video Coding", from the Auckland meeting in January, 2012. Video recordings of the presentation are also available, but unfortunately not for the first part day.
