So what's new between the 21st and 27th of September? Well...

  • The <video>-dev community had their 24h global livestream. That was pretty cool!
    The Google Sheet at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/13zZyjcA2tfX-T9woz6Xj1ZwNLGkVSTyxQHm9XKQwpuw/edit?usp=sharing contains an overview of all talks, and has a Twitch-timecode-link associated with every talk for accessibility purposes. Feel free to comment suggestions/changes as I'm happy to add them!
  • Some great new Google content is out there. ExoPlayer 2.12.0 is available, and they also did a blog post on MediaPipe 3D face transformations. Also: Android 11 is now available on Android TV.
  • New resources have been added to Awesome.video.

Let's take a closer look.
