    H265 to replace H264 for video streaming

    Hi there

    It seems that the new "Standard" video streaming codec for 1080p full HD will be H265 instead of H264 -- advantage of this is that apparently for the same quality file size will be 50% less -- great for those with either capped usages or slow downloads or even for those who watch streamed video on their mobile phones (Sky sports for example using the Sky Go service !!).

    Anybody know when we can start seeing this codec go mainstream.

    Looks like you might need a new phone however -- unless Samsung etc can release a Firmware update --no reason why they shouldn't but corporate greed might rear it's ugly head again and require us to buy new ones even though the latest set of smart phones are absolutely first class.

    The h.265 codec is finally complete, here's why it's going to matter

    I give it a couple years for it to really take off. I say by the end of 2014, we will see it quite a bit.
