    Phoronix: FFmpeg Lands AVIF Muxer For This Image Format Based On AV1

    The widely-used FFmpeg multimedia library this morning merged AVIF muxing support for this image format based on the AV1 royalty-free video codec technology...

      This isn't going to get adopted, because mov/mp4 are controlled by MPEG-LA and they want nothing to do with AV1. So it will be a bastardised standard, so it will never be adopted by W3C, Firefox, Chrome, and that will kill it dead. Sigh.

        Compared to jpeg, many other formats beat it hands down these days. In that mindset, avif is awesome!

        However...
        Jpeg XL is, in my opinion, far superior to anything else and appears to be far more efficient for the CPU too (encoding time, decoding time).

          now I can finally stop doing it manually, avif is still the best gif alternative right now, glad to see it finally getting support in ffmpeg, though I still need to wait for android gallery app with support sadly

            In response to Blogs -- AVIF is already supported by Firefox and Chrome [1]. W3C doesn't need to do anything since the picture element already supports it (image/avif) and enables specifying a backup like jpeg for browsers that don't support image/avif.

              But... Firefox supports it since 93 and Chrome supports it since 85.

                  Yet it's adopted and supported by all mentioned.

                    I think the biggest roadblock to AVIF/JXL/whatever is going to be habit and familiarity. Kinda like how transcoding to mp3 is still popular, and some apps *still* default to it, even though there is basically no reason to do it.


                    Webp is basically AVIF's predecessor, but it faced a similar issue. No one is going to use it if it wont embed in discord or facebook or imgur or whatever, if their camera doesn't encode it, and if their apps still default to making jpegs.
