> +1 for deprecation of VP6 and clearing the way to open sourcing of JFXMedia.
> On a related note, you will soon need to support H.265/HEVC. HEVC apparently also supports an alpha channel, so it may also address that concern. (See http://www.itu.int/rec/T-REC-H.265-201504-I/en)
3D support too! Not sure how we'd handle that though...
> All of this might be much easier to handle if JDK-8091063 is addressed (the open sourcing of JFXMedia may assist with this).
> The brilliant guy that filed that issue nearly seven years ago was on to something :-)
> Then legacy formats could be provided in optional downloads and new formats can be supported without the need to integrate them within the JRE code.
Yes, that would be wonderful!
