VP8 has a higher bitrate than MPEG-1, but it’s slower.
VP9 is the next version of MPEG-8, which has a bitrate that’s comparable to MPEG-5.
While VP9 can encode and decode the same file, it’s much faster to do so and uses fewer resources.
The first time you watch a web video, the codec uses a bit rate of 720p (640p if you’re on a mobile device).
For 1080p, it uses a speed of up to 1.3Mbps.
MPEG4-2 (VP8) can encode 1080p video at up to 120fps and 1080p videos at up
