Gangnam Style “Memecahkan” Penghitung Youtube

Youtube hanya menggunakan Integer sebagai penghitung. Mereka tak mengira bahwa akan ada satu video yang dapat ditonton melebihi sekitar dua trilyun. Video klip Psy, Gangnam Style, baru saja mematahkan mitos tersebut.

Bagusnya Google, mereka mengakui itu dan bermain dengan penghitung jumlah penonton. Ya, kalau mau iseng, silakan berkunjung ke video tersebut dan ketika melewati angka jumlah penonton, animasi akan muncul dan angka minus pun tertera.Saatnya menggunakan Integer tak bertanda (semua positif).

Here Comes Another Challenger

Here Comes Another Challenger

When HTML5 was published, there was an internal struggle going on between parties whom endorsed video format for HTML5. Commercial companies such as Google proposed H.264 codec to serve HTML5. The problem with H.264 was that particular format was patent encumbered. This means that the format itself were not applicable for free in some countries. That’s why, Mozilla Foundation completely rejected the idea of using H.264 and embracing Ogg Vorbis format instead. Both sides with good reason and ideology ended up stalled.

Fortunately, Google was recently buy On2, a company that holds  a new codec: VP8. From [FSF], a plea of releasing VP8 was made. Yesterday [ARS] revealed the new format was becoming free. Google also had provide a support site [WEBM] contains VP8 integration (library). The codec called WebM.

The site is new, the code only on GIT, and the list of plugins coming soon. Albeit, few months from now, days for those bleeding edge SVN/GIT/[name your favorite free software tools SCM] enthusiasts. You know how fast FOSS absorb technologies. I suppose, it would be on Meerkat.

What is the implication of this?

With the new open standard for video, we can see a peace once more on HTML5. This means, HTML5 most disputable issue has been resolved. So, expect an overwhelming HTML5 adoption on the coming months. Meaning: study HTML5 now! 😀

All in all, here’s a cheer for Free/Open Source Movement and Open Standard movement!
