Great! Let me know if you need any help. We have VP8 as our preferred
codec in Firefox (with VP9 supported as well).

Will keep that in mind, thanks!

The goal is to mimic the settings from the "Real-time CBR Encoding and Streaming" section of https://www.webmproject.org/docs/encoder-parameters/

Sooner is better than later. You don't want to get into the situation
where proprietary codecs are required for compatibility with old Ring
clients. We were able to work around this for WebRTC for one codec (with
OpenH264) but that's not applicable to the other 2 proprietary codecs.
Plus, starting fresh, there's no reason to get into that mess at all.

(plus, as you may have guessed by now, I'm really not a huge fan of a
GNU project endorsing or supporting proprietary codecs)

In an ideal world, I could just remove all the codecs but VPX and only focus on those, but I don't have the final say in this. ;)
