On the heels of Google's announcement today taking the WebM video format open source, Broadcom declared that its VideoCore mobile multimedia processors will be able to provide hardware acceleration for WebM videos. Broadcom says it worked with Google during the definition phase of the VP8 codec behind WebM. The chipmaker projects its new VideoCore IV processor will support WebM video up to WVGA (800 by 640) resolution at 30 frames per second. Mobile devices could play WebM videos for up to 8 hours on the mobile display, or connect via HDMI to an HDTV for up to 14 hours of playback on a larger screen.
