It has been more than 5 years now. I had been waiting for the VP9 codec to be implemented by 4chan:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VP9
It was (and still is) better quality in a lower filesize. The argument for it was simple, and it would have saved money since there is less load on the server. It was a no brainer!
Now, the AV1 codec beats VP9 by a fair margin, and destroys VP8 which 4chan currently uses. Times are changing and we should be able to use these codecs that are much more efficient.http://www.streamingmedia.com/Articles/ReadArticle.aspx?ArticleID=122945
