Activate the VP9 codec in Windows 10 build 10547

In addition to many changes to the operating system itself, Windows 10 build 10547 also has a remarkable change in the Microsoft Edge browser.

If you already have Windows 10 build 10547, you can enable the VP9 encoder. Let's see how.Microsoft Edge

VP9 is a special codec created by Google. As such, Google's open source projects are distributed free of charge.

In the Experimental Features section, scroll down where you will meet Media Source Extensions.

Check the Enable VP9 checkbox. Once you turn it on, you will need to restart your browser.vp9 Windows 10

After the browser is restarted, Microsoft Edge will be able to manage Web pages that contain embedded online videos encoded with the VP9 codec.
