NewTek's Native Video File Format Goes Global

April 19, 2017 by Chuck Baker

A seemingly small piece of ultra-techy news popped recently that will have big implications for NewTek production system users, and has us very excited. With absolutely no fanfare, source code from Steinar H. Gunderson porting NewTek’s native SpeedHQ multimedia codecs to the free software project FFmpeg was accepted into the official version of the FFmpeg libraries.

“Oh,” you say? “This is a huge deal why?” Because FFmpeg is used by almost every video conversion library in the world and powers video playback for a lot of software and platforms, including Google Chrome, YouTube, VLC Media Player, Media Player Classic HC, the Linux version of Firefox, pretty much every file converter and application known to man, etc. You read that right: you will be able to play your TriCaster clips in a browser window.

The first FFmpeg update to contain this code has just been released, as seen in the featured image above. This means that our native files are going to work almost everywhere soon, with no conversion needed.  Where and when conversion is desired, it will be immediately available, most likely right there within the application you are using.  But you can save the export step when you want to take a native TriCaster, 3Play or IP Series video to any application or platform that uses the FFmpeg libraries.
