AV1 Support?


Active member
Any plans to include AV1 support? My Blu-ray player does not support AV1 video files. More and more YouTube videos are using AV1 as well. After downloading, they will need conversion to AVC or HEVC.

We've discussed it, but it's not high priority since it's really not used anywhere outside of Google/YouTube right now. I mean if FFmpeg adds support we can update our decoder to allow it so you'll be able to edit with full recode. But adding a new smart editing format is a big undertaking so unless this catches on in broadcasting we probably wont invest the resources. (just like we skipped WMV9 and VC-1)
