comment Why don't interpreters interpret bytecode (like VMs) - instead of source code?
technically that's an emulator, but the lines start the blur when you think about it too much

comment Is Java Bytecode interpreted?
it's compiled to machine code and then called like a normal function

comment Is Java Bytecode interpreted?
semantics mostly, it's largely to differentiate interpretation and JITted execution

comment What exactly is Virtual Machine Bytecode?
it's an 8-bit structure, today's architecture are best equipped to deal with byte streams and it's much harder to deal with arbitrary bit streams.

comment What exactly is Virtual Machine Bytecode?
that is a possible approach, but I suggest focusing on using byte based opcodes each being a multiple of 8 bits. printing would often be a function call with the parameter pointing to a string in memory somewhere

comment What does this duration reported by ffmpeg mean?
I'd guess hundreds of a second (otherwise it'd be 00:03:57.0054) so at 26 frames a second that would be 14 frames beyond a full second time

comment What data cannot be compressed by huffman codes?
random data has a lot of information per bit compared to for example ASCII text files where the only around ~90 of the 256 possible values per byte are used
