For those of you who have read the two novels (the anime series covers both of them), you would understand the true nature of what Pollyanna really signifies. Unfortunately, in today's society, due to a drastic misinterpretation of the character itself, the word "Pollyanna" has taken a rather negative connotation that is warped and not to the spirit of the novel. As part of our efforts to sub Pollyanna, we wish to try to convey the true meaning of what it means to be a Pollyanna and how her attitude can make everyone's life a lot more happier.
Again, we will try to maintain, as much as possible, a release once every other day, although circumstances may make this difficult over the next month or so.
We have added the VP8/WebM format as one of our release formats. As the encoder, I am aware of the fact that VP8 is technically inferior to h.264 and I am very well aware of the reasons why. The reasoning why we chose to add it to our release formats is not because of the patent encumbrance of h.264, nor it is because of the open source nature of the code. Instead, I personally feel that VP8 deserves a chance to shine.
In my opinion, "technical superiority" is only part of the equation on how good a codec is. The other part of the question is "is the quality of the video good enough that Mr. John Q. Public would be able to enjoy it?" We can go into all sorts of technical discussions on whether VP8, h.264, or XviD is better, but the final judge is the viewer who will watch the video.
We hope that everyone will enjoy Pollyanna and find something to be glad about in everything. We also thank everyone for your continued support.
