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!

@freebliss i really liked the talk that @praxeology & @entreprecariat had earlier this week. no video, only audio!

not all things need slides and faces, the radio format worked quite well for a lot of situations (and still does :)

@freebliss
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.

@freebliss

for general approach @gauthier gauthierroussilhe.com/en/posts (opting for lower resolution is still the best and least 'acceptable' approach imo)

then also check out the floppy films by @fcr floppyfilms.pleintekst.nl/
