What Is H.266/VVC?

H.266 is an advanced video compression standard developed by leading video coding experts, the Joint Video Experts Team (JVET). It is also known as Versatile Video Coding (VVC) and is aimed at surpassing its predecessor, H.265/HEVC.

It opens up new possibilities in video data compression, providing higher efficiency while maintaining high image quality. Through the use of advanced compression algorithms, this standard is able to support resolutions ranging from very low up to 4K and 16K, as well as 360° videos, high dynamic range (HDR), color depth, and other advanced technologies.

H.266/VVC represents a significant breakthrough in video compression, so users can enjoy higher-quality video while the amount of data transferred will be minimal.

No, H.266/VVC (Versatile Video Coding) is the newest codec. It is the latest version of the video codec developed by the Joint Video Experts Team (JVET).

Elmedia Player offers both free and paid versions. The free version of the player contains the basic functions of playing multimedia files and support for various formats. However, the paid version offers advanced features, including streaming, picture-in-picture mode, video and image layout adjustments, saving subtitles from, etc.
Elmedia Player does not require additional modules, codes, or decoding apps to play the H.266/VCC codec. The app has native support for a wide range of audio and video codecs, including H.266/VCC.
