VP9 In A Word: Disappointing

This article is about a video lesson that compares the FFmpeg-based implementations of VP9, H.264, HEVC, and AV1. The lesson uses the Netflix convex hull analysis to build unique encoding ladders for each test clip and codec and shows why BD-Rate figures don’t accurately predict real-world savings. Towards the end, it presents a technique for computing the real-world impact of implementing a new codec. Sadly, for VP9, the answer is likely not much.
