s905 - Why Am I Able To Play VP9 video...?

  • Pleasure to be here and take part in this community!

    Just a quick question regarding VP9 and s905. I downloaded a video through VLC from YouTube (no re encoding or converting) I am now playing it on my s905 and I took a peek @ the codec info window by hitting "o" on the keyboard. It says the codec is "ff-vp9".

    How is this possible? I was under the impression only the s905x and s912 can play vp9. Anyways, maybe someone can help explain this?

    Greatly appreciated guys!
