Compared with the royalty charges tied with HEVC or H.265 codec, the biggest advantage of VP9 is that VP9 codec is an open source and royalty free codec. VP9 can provide the same video transmission quality as H.265, if not better, and is supported by YouTube and its 19 hardware partners. So if want to upload videos in this free VP9 codec to YouTube or your blog, etc, you can use iDealshare VideoGo to convert other videos like MP4, AVI, WMV, MOV, MKV, MPG, TS, H.265, AVCHD, MXF, MOD, TOD etc to VP9.
