incredible how free media formats (Matroska, Ogg) are just so much better than anything developed by the corporations

@elomatreb matroska is just a container and ogg vorbis is superseded by opus, ogg theora is superseded by av1
however, the point absolutely stands, because opus and av1 absolutely are best-in-class and destroy all the proprietary codecs

@syntacticsugarglider you are right about the codecs too though, with the unfortunate wrinkle that video codecs today are very limited in their usefulness without hardware support, which at least for my devices makes using anything but h264 annoying

@syntacticsugarglider I installed a firefox addon to stop youtube serving me VP9/AV1 videos because those make my laptop overheat
