Oggetto: [Multimedia] Video output changing to WebM VP9/Opus soon

In the next couple weeks I'm planning to start switching our video
transcode output from WebM VP8/Vorbis to the newer WebM VP9/Opus
profile, which saves us about 38% on file size and bandwidth while
retaining the same quality.

This will not affect what kinds of files you upload; only the scaled
transcoded output files used for playback will change. All modern
browsers that support VP8 support VP9 as well, and our player shim for
Safari and IE will continue to work.

All the details:

Comments and questions welcome!
