FOMS 2015 took place last Friday in Brussels, Belgium at mudo-b. It was a great workshop meeting where open media developers and advocates gathered to discuss shared challenges in multi-screen media delivery.
Representatives from key web player projects like video.js, jwplayer and kaltura player hashed out plans for improving cross player accessibility conventions. We also reviewed progress on adopting adaptive streaming protocols like DASH along with sharing efforts on existing HLS based plugins.
Daala, the royalty free next-next generation codec was covered in detail. Daala aims to surpass quality of h.265 and vp9 later this year. Ongoing IP challenges were outlined along with means for replacing heavily patented technology with alternative encoding approaches.
