Provides tools to parse VP9 bitstreams and IVF containers.

Use case

This crate does not contain a VP9 decoder. It only provides the tools to parse a VP9 bitstream, which then could be handled by a dedicated decoder. Most likely the output will be fed into hardware decoders like Vulkan Video, VA-API, VDPAU, NVDEC and possibly DXVA.


Since the main use case of this crate is to support the usage of Vulkan Video for decoding VP9 videos, for which the final API for VP9 is not yet known (VK_EXT_video_decode_VP9), the API might change in the future considerably.
