    Is it worth the trouble to re-encode those and to what format?
    Should I re-dump those DVDs and BDs? That would probably take days.
    Should I re-encode what I already have as H.264? The quality will probably be worse than before.
    Or is the quality and size ratio not worth the effort?
    do you need more storage space? if so the I would re-encode, if not then no.

    It doesn't worth the die space on a desktop CPU. I'm sure plenty of workstations could put AVX-512 to god use, though.

    I tried recently to play a 4K HDR AV1 file on my laptop and on my desktop and I couldn't, the video was too laggy.
    Maybe after VLC manages to update it up to this version, I will be finally able to play it normally, at least on the desktop.
    the new version of vlc was released 12 days ago, not sure if you used that version or not. P.S 4k AV1 would certainly use a huge amount of cpu, i'm sure you could play 1080p if your laptop/desktop is recent.

    should try and use MPV, it's quite good.

    probably a long time, as vlc was updated only recently after many months which included v0.91 if i recall.

    That's actually older Intel CPUs. I believe only Rocket/Tiger Lake supports it.
