With upcoming changes to data protection and privacy laws in Europe coming into effect soon, we thought this would be a good time to remind everyone that we do have a privacy policy.
This applies to all users and visitors world-wide.

We have made a few changes to the language to make it clearer in relation to this new regulation but fundamentally, the terms and your rights are unchanged.

AV1 support ?

Post by ihandbrake » Sun May 13, 2018 3:21 pm

Hi, now that the AV1 codec is officially released, can we expect handbrake being able to encode in AV1 shortly?

Shortly, no. Longer term, Yes.

AV1 Spec is released but it can take a year or two before a good encoder becomes available that doesn't have encode times that are in the months.
I think we were around 3.5 years wait for VP9 and even now (5+ years on), most folks still today find it intolerably slow although encode times are down from months to many hours.

AV1 appears to have better backing so hopefully won't be as long.

Just as soon as you release a high quality, high efficiency, high speed encoder for AV1.

We'll wait.
