In this article, we will show that the FPGA-based real-time VP9 encoding can deliver at least 25% bitrate savings compared to the highest-quality H.264 encoders deployed in Twitch’s production today.
然後提到 1080p60 至少省了 25% 的頻寬 (這邊應該是相較於 H.264)：
VP9’s Compression Efficiency for Live 1080p60 Encoding: We Can Achieve At Least 25% Bitrate Savings
VP9 is implemented in these web browsers:
Chromium and Google Chrome (usable by default since version 29 from May and August 2013, respectively), Opera (since version 15 from July 2013), Mozilla Firefox (since version 28 from March 2014), Microsoft Edge (as of summer 2016).
The Plex Media Server desktop application runs on Windows, macOS and Linux-compatibles including some types of NAS devices. The 'server' desktop application organizes video, audio and photos from your collections and from online services, enabling the players to access and stream the contents.
The media players. There are official clients available for mobile devices, smart TVs, and streaming boxes, a web app and Plex Home Theater (no longer maintained), as well as many third-party alternatives.
Plex confirmed it’s rolling out a new feature that will allow cord cutters to skip the commercials in the TV programs recorded using its software, making the company’s lower-cost solution to streaming live TV more compelling. Unlike other commercial-skip options, Plex’s option will remove commercials from recordings automatically.
這讓我有些印像... 當年 TiVo 也有類似的功能，不過文章裡有提到 TiVo 是提供 skip 而非直接拿掉：
The new feature works by locating the commercials in your recorded media. It then actually removes them before the media is stored in your library. That sounds like it could be even better than TiVo’s commercial skipping option, for example, because you don’t have to press a button to skip the ads — they’re being pulled out for you, proactively.
The basic streaming plan, which only allows for streaming on only one screen at a time, will remain at $7.99 a month.
雙螢幕版漲 $1 變成 $10.99：
The company’s most popular plan — which allows customers to stream titles on two devices with a single account — will increase by $1 to $10.99 a month.
四螢幕版漲 $2 變成 $13.99：
The premium plan — which allows customers to use the same account for four screens at once — will increase by $2 to $13.99 a month.
The price hike arrives as Netflix continues to increase production of original TV and movie content. The company said that by the end of the year it will have spent around $6 billion for original content in 2017. In August, Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer, told Variety that the company planned to spend about $7 billion for original programming next year.
Provide a set of technical requirements for production and post-production workflows to ensure that a high level of quality is maintained throughout the lifecycle of a project from capture to archive. This serves the purpose of future-proofing the content as the Netflix platform and viewing experience continue to evolve.
