We love supporting new file formats and when Google announced an initiative for a free and open video format we wanted to jump on board to help adoption.
The team that created WebM have been pioneers in video codec development for over a decade. WebM delivers high quality video while efficiently adapting to the varying processing and bandwidth conditions found on today’s broad range of web-connected devices. WebM’s efficient bandwidth usage will mean lower serving costs for content publishers and high quality video for end-users.
You can now convert all of the following video formats into the new WebM (Web Media) format:
- 3g2 – 3GPP2 Multimedia File
- 3gp – 3GPP Multimedia File
- asf – Advanced Streaming Format (Microsoft Corporation)
- avi – Windows video file
- flv – Flash Video
- gvi – Google video file
- m4v – MPEG-4 Video File
- mod – Hard disk camera movie
- mov – Apple QuickTime Movie
- mp4 – MPEG-4 Video File
- mpg – Moving Picture Experts Group File
- rm – RealMedia Streaming Media
- rmvb – RealVideo Variable Bit Rate File
- vob – DVD Video Movie File
- wmv – Windows Media File (Microsoft Corporation)
