Shooting 4K video is guaranteed to eat up your iPhone storage space in no time. MacX Video Converter Pro helps solve your storage headaches by letting you compress large-size videos, fast. But the app is more than that: you can also transform any unsupported video files to iOS-friendly formats that will work perfectly on all your Apple devices.
Ahead of releasing its new iMac Pro, Apple earlier this morning pushed a long-expected update to its Final Cut Pro X app on Mac App Store.
VLC, the popular cross-platform media player, was updated on App Store this morning with support for the native OLED display resolution on iPhone X and the ability to play 4K video encoded in the High Efficiency Video Coding standard (the H.265 codec).
Vimeo today announced it's rolling out support for high dynamic range video (HDR), playable on compatible devices like the new iPhone X, iPad Pro and Apple TV 4K.
A popular automation tool for iPhone and iPad, Workflow, was updated on App Store this morning with several new iOS 11 and iPhone X features.
FiLMiC Pro, the best video recording software on iOS used by filmmakers and pros, was updated on App Store with the ability to shoot in High Efficiency Video Coding (also known as H.265), a video compression standard supported in iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra.
If you own an iPhone 7 and newer or a 2017 iPad Pro, you may have noticed that updating to iOS 11 defaults the Camera app to capturing photos in Apple's new High Efficiency Image File Format (.HEIC files) and videos in the High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC or H.265) format instead of the ubiquitous JPEG and H.264 media formats.
Following today's release of the macOS High Sierra software update which, among other things, enables High-Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) on supported Macs, the company has issued an update to iMovie for Mac bringing the ability to import HEVC videos.
iOS 11 introduced support for modern HEIF and HEVC codecs developed by the Moving Picture Experts Group (not Apple's proprietary formats) that keep high-resolution photos and videos taken with iPhone and iPad from eating up all your available storage.
Google's hasn't enjoyed much success with VP8, a video codec it developed back in 2010 as a H.264 replacement for efficient video streaming. The Chrome browser supports VP8 codec out-of-the-box (so no plug-in required), but Google's plans for VP8 domination were shattered by literally non-existent support from major industry players.
As a result, VP8 has never gained hardware-acceleration because chip makers opted to stand firmly behind H.264, an industry-standard video codec Apple's devices support natively and on the silicon level.
At next week's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the Internet giant will be showing off YouTube streaming in a 4K resolution of 3,840 pixels by 2,160 lines via its brand new royalty-free video codec, VP9.
This time around, Google has lined up an impressive list of industry players who will back the new format. Notably absent: a certain fruity company...
