AV1 Support?

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)

Sorry to resurrect this old thread, but I have started getting videos using AV1 from one of my correspondents and find Videoredo still can't read them. I note that there is now at least some support for AV1 in FFMPEG. Any later news on plans to incorporate support in VideoRedo?

(If I have missed another thread on this my apologies, but I find VideoRedo won't let me use "AV1" as a search term, I get told it is "too short").

Adding it as a fast edit format is probably not going to happen any time soon. It's a very complex issue to add fast edit capabilities. But if FFMpeg supports it we'll probably add the ability to open them as uncompressed videos in the future. That's done by simply letting FFMpeg do the decoding and then treating the files as raw YUV frames internally. But it also means that the output will always need to be recoded.
