Now if they would only make GPU encoding look better.

New compression schemes get proposed all the time. We will see how much entanglement they are going to have in terms of patents, licensing, and your other common standards-related roadblocks to hinder the adoption. Not that I am opposed to more efficient compression schemes (after all the wireless spectrum is finite), but this is just what I have observed over the years.

Or network providers (wired and wireless) just cap you some more. :x

Yeah but this is from the MPEG group themselves. You know, the ones who hold everyone's balls in their hands with the licensing anyway? If there's any place a patent troll should fear taking on, it's them.

All HEVC means to me is "your video card won't have dedicated hardware to decompress this junk!"

Hey, anyone remember when Fractal Compression was supposed to be the new hotness?
