Is it possible to encode video with VP9 and make webM videos? If so, how? The help doesn't include either in the list of formats/codecs.

    $\begingroup$ These formats are not possible to export directly from Blender, as they are fairly obscure and specialized. You will need to use a special application to convert the video files you export to these formats. I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about video encoding methods and is not about Blender. $\endgroup$ – VRM Mar 18 '15 at 11:05

    $\begingroup$ @NoviceInDisguise It actually is anout Blender, it's asking if Blender can export these formats. The answer is no, so in my mind you should put that in an answer. But I don't see why it should be closed just because the answer is no. $\endgroup$ – PGmath Mar 18 '15 at 13:57

    $\begingroup$ @PGmath I agree. $\endgroup$ – Ray Mairlot Mar 18 '15 at 14:43
  • $\begingroup$ @PGmath, that is the question, but since it can't, it is off-topic, there have been questions closed in the same manner before. If you think it necessary, we should of course re-open it. I am not an advocate for closing as an end-all, quite the contrary. $\endgroup$ – VRM Mar 18 '15 at 16:02

    $\begingroup$ @NoviceInDisguise See meta.blender.stackexchange.com/q/431/599. The question is asking of such functionality is available from within blender. It's not, but that doesn't make the question invalid. It just needs a "no" answer. $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Mar 18 '15 at 19:00

It's not possible.

You should use Blender as a Frame Server and then use another Encoding software to do the job for you. ;-)

For anyone looking at this since the release of 2.80 may be interested to know that WebM is now supported.
