So, my little Python-WebM project is now public (it was already public but not publicised ) and anyone can start reading and writing the Google WebM format for images.
python-webm package is an interface to the Google WebM new video/image codec which promise a better compression of image and video data. The interface uses ctypes to call the libvpx/libwebm Google libraries installed in the system. At the moment only the libwebm library is wrapped and with some limitations.
Here a list of platforms with the current support status of the python-webm package:
- Windows: SUPPORTED
- Ubuntu: SUPPORTED
- Mac OS X: SUPPORTED
Below a list of prerequisites to use the python-webm package:
- Python 2.6+ (http://www.python.org)
- Python nose (http://code.google.com/p/python-nose)
- libwebp from sources (http://www.webmproject.org/code/#webp-repositories) or binary distribution for the target OS
- Python PIL (http://www.pythonware.com/products/pil)
