          There's already AV1 decoding support on native Linux (for Mesa AMD drivers of course).

            I said this the other day -- It'd be nice if they'd come up with some sort of USB DRM key or DRM module that plugs into a slot like a hardware TPM key. Just plug in the key and that proves you have the licenses to use the codecs. The status quo sucks where we own a handful of supported devices that come with licenses bundled and being unable to transfer the licenses between devices like from an unused device to an in-use one. Some of these licenses I know I've paid for 10 times by now.

              Unfortunately, Windows isn't hampered by royalties and licenses and all that kind of legalese bullshit that holds Linux back.

                Just search for HEVC in microsoft store
                you can't play HEVC in windows without that
                And it only works when you have hw with HEVC decoder
                so no software fallback.
                Yes it all works just fine with some codec packs or VLC
                but windows don't enable HEVC by default.
                And funny stuff
                if you want HEVC decoder support in windows browser only EDGE has it working and only when you buy HEVC in microsoft store

                  Aren't they asking money for this new codec like they do with others?
                  I know it's an open codec, but I wouldn't be surprised if they asked money for it anyway.

                    Microsoft can afford to throw 50 people at it for 8 hours a day. At the end of a week that's 2000 man hours.

                    Linux Mint can afford to throw 3 people at it, likely not for 8 hours a day. At best, that's 120 man hours in the week.

                    Now you tell me why we're at where we are at.
