This entry was designed to act as the clarification of the codecs that are currently supported on this site. We feel it is necessary to break this off into its own individual entry similar to what we did for 7-Zip so that anyone who is new to our site can understand what is happening here.
WebP from Google will deliver faster internet to you. But at what cost?
WebP is something I found out by total accident when asking the simple question of:
Why does Google Chrome not support animated .PNG files?
It turns out Google instead of including the format into the library on their browser decided instead to exclude it. Although you can simply download an animated PNG plugin for Chrome here. That’s not the point. The point is it should be natively supported which it is not. If Google finally did support animated PNG files then Google now supports APNG which now we can put an axe into animated .GIF files. A Format which is still in use since the late 1980’s! Animated GIF files are now old enough to run for president of the United States! However, Google’s attitude was as follows:
Why spend any more time on other formats like PNG and JPG when WebP will be cooler!
Note: This issue with Google Chrome as of 7/25/2017 has now been resolved but the entry still stand for archival reasons.
The On-Screens Display (OSD) bug in Kodi Ouya CM11.
Before I talk about the On-Screen display issue there are a lot of people that visit my site that come from the Kodi website and that is totally cool! I love to see all of the people getting a little more life out of a console which was technically only supposed to last 1-2 years before the Ouya 2 was theoretically supposed to come out (and NO Razor, I’m not calling the Cortex the Ouya 2. Not happening.)
