Compressify: video compression

Want to add a video background to your site, but you need to compress your video? Check out Compressify.

Google’s new VP9 codec for WebM format video files offer significant savings on bitrate for practically identical quality video files. Compressify uses an algorithm to automatically detect the optimal reduced bitrate and re-encodes the file, compressing video files by 20-60% with visually identical frames and virtually the same browser compatibility. For best results, compress from your source video.

iPhone 7 Impressions – Marques Brownlee

Alright, if you’re a regular reader, my guess is you know all about the latest iPhone 7 Apple introduced yesterday. That’s not the point of this post. Rather I want to introduce you to self-made tech reporter Marques Brownlee. I love this kid’s hustle.

As you can tell from the video included with this post, Marques is talented. He’s got the gear for shooting great footage, and he knows how to edit. He has used his YouTube channel to garner over 3.6 million followers. That among other things got him press access to yesterday’s Apple event. If you want to check out more of his stuff, check out his YouTube channel or follow him on Twitter.
