Full Version: Support AV1 Codec (AOMedia Video 1)

Kodi 18.3 is currently unable to play AV1 encoded videos.

It would be nice if Kodi could ship a ffmpeg version with an enabled AV1 module (libaom or dav1d).
I took a look at the make-file in order to open a PR, but was somewhat overwhelmed: https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/blob/18.3-L...MPEG.cmake

I'm currently fixing the Kodi plugin for Vimeo. Vimeo now ships a lot of videos AV1 encoded, because Firefox and Chrome support this codec since some time.
But the AV1 encoded videos from Vimeo can't be played in Kodi, which is a bummer...

If there is already a plan to enable AV1, please share a link. I couldn't find anything official in the wiki or forums.
