Video processing with WebCodecs
Published: 13 October 2020
With the explosion of streaming services, like streaming movies, TV shows, or people live streaming, streaming libraries for browsers have also popped up all over the place. One disadvantage with most of these libraries is that they don't allow you to manipulate lower level features. Eugene Zemtsov has written an article introducing the WebCodecs API, which give developers access to browser built-in features like "video and audio decoders, video and audio encoders, raw video frames, and image decoders". Eugene also explains the workflow and provides examples for each of the individual components.
