AWS Elemental MediaConvert now allows you to create WebM DASH outputs using VP8 or VP9 video. You can use segmented content in a WebM container to support dynamic adaptive streaming over HTTP (DASH). The ability to create WebM DASH outputs using the VP8 and VP9 codecs provides more options for preparing content for VOD delivery. For more information about VP8 and VP9 support in MediaConvert, please see our announcement here.

With AWS Elemental MediaConvert, video providers with any size content library can easily and reliably transcode on-demand content for broadcast and multiscreen delivery. MediaConvert functions independently or as part of AWS Elemental Media Services, a family of services that form the foundation of cloud-based workflows and offer the capabilities needed to transport, transcode, package, and deliver video.
