Your CPU won't even notice™

Can you imagine a process of decoding video in JavaScript that leaves no footprint in your Task Manager ?!

Our latest version of JavaScript mpeg1-like video decoder offlooads major decoding tasks like color conversion, inverse DCT, dequantization and motion compensation onto your GPU using WebGL which is the ideal tool for this task. JavaScript on CPU does demuxing and simply loads the data onto GPU and is therefore ready for all your other tasks.
