Gaming videos are increasingly being streamed live over the Internet, as evident by the increasing popularity of services such as Twitch.tv and YouTube-Gaming, with Twitch.tv alone consisting of approx. [...] Key Result The magnitude of bitrate savings for VP9 compared to H.264/MPEG-AVC is found to be highly dependent on the content type, with H.264/MPEG-AVC resulting in higher average bitrate savings with an encoding speed four times faster than VP9.Expand
