    I believe you are correct in all that. But requiring ffmpeg on Fedora means going to rpmfusion which was the concern of the poster I was responding to.

    Great to see AV1 support! I hope they will find some solution to ship this in the fedora repos, maybe without encoder parts or so - currently it requires rpmfusion and can thus not be shipped preinstalled :/

What you are going to run to view AV1 content on Fedora or any other distro is another question all together. Firefox has AV1 decode but I don't remember if it supports hardware decode. If you want to use a dedicated movie player or some thing like MythTV/Kodi then ya you are back into rpmfusion.

    Still a good move. I wish it supported 4:2:2 rather than just 4:2:0 but seeing who the main backers of AV1 are that isn't that surprising.

    On another point does any one that buys a laptop with Linux installed stick with that installation or do they all wipe it and do their own install? Given the choice I will give my money to to a Linux distro over say Windows but that doesn't mean I am sticking with it.
