    Why? AV1 has 10bit in the main profile,so Hardware decoder need to support 10bit.
    VP9 did not have that, 10bit was in VP9 profile 2 and not all devices did support it and so Youtube did only use 10bit for HDR content.
    VVC/h266 does AFAIK go even so far and has only 10bit+ "VVC should support YCbCr 4:4:4, 4:2:2 and 4:2:0 with 10 to 16 bits per component," and i think AV2 will go the same route.

    Netflix uses 10bit AV1 https://netflixtechblog.com/netflix-now-streaming-av1-on-android-d5264a515202 10bit on arm64 is nearly as fast as 8bit(Software decoding/dav1d).

    Now that software decoding of 10bit AV1 will get more assembly on x86(so far only AVX2 but there is a SSE2 merge request in the dav1d repo) is it more likely that services like youtube could use it too.
    As long as the source has not the banding already would that help to get rid of a big chunk of it.

    Don't know if there is a way to do that from FF client, but according to bugtracker, current release (88) should have dav1d 0.8.2 (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1688992) and the next one (89) will have 6c6d25d3: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1694517

    Wouldn't know about that. FF was ok we the last few versions and it seems the [plan](https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1700452) is to do the next dav1d update in FF90 which is due in July. On the other hand, Chrome(ium) just updated to 0.8.2 in 90, so it might take a bit longer for the next update.
