Are there interesting examples on the web for deliberate extreme video processing/compression techniques that address the ever-growing ecological impact of video streaming?
I'm specifically looking for general purpose approaches that use ubiquituous tech (e.g. gif, h264 coding, ascii video), not patent-pending AI facial reconstruction tech or handmade ASCII movies ;) - although if you have some completely out-of-the-box thoughts on the topic I'd be very curious to hear about them too! #degrowth #lofi #streaming
There's research into the AV1 codec because in reduces the storage bottom line of the video hosters, but it might move the decoding (energy requirements) onto each viewers machine.
for general approach @gauthier https://gauthierroussilhe.com/en/posts/convert-low-tech#video (opting for lower resolution is still the best and least 'acceptable' approach imo)
