VDD12 • VDD13 • VDD14 • VDD15 • VDD16 • VDD17 • VDD18 • VDD19 • VDD21

Welcome to Video Dev Days 2021

The VideoLAN non-profit organization is happy to invite you to the multimedia open-source event of the fall!

For its twelfths edition, people from the VideoLAN and open source multimedia communities will meet in Amsterdam to discuss and work on the future of the open-source multimedia community.

This is a very technical conference, focused on low-level multimedia.

Who can come?

Literally every one is invited to VDD, we just need registration for legal reason (to enter the building).

This is a technical conference, focused on low-level multimedia, like codecs and their implementations like x264 or dav1d, frameworks like FFmpeg or Gstreamer or playback libraries like libVLC.

Things like Javascript video frameworks or ad-injection frameworks would be considered out of scope.

The price to enter is totally Free.
