Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.

A little script to parse large libraries to AV1, if you're interested
4 projects | reddit.com/r/ffmpeg | 15 Apr 2023
You can speed up the sampling process with --vmaf n_subsample=5, which in my experience works more accurately than either 2 or 4, possibly due to this bug/feature present in multiple encoders. You might also need to manually set the number of threads used for VMAF calculation with --vmaf n_threads=16, but YMMV.

I doubt much will be done on such an exotic feature any time soon. Progress has been slow on rav1e, it's missing a lot of features, and only supports tile threading.2 projects | reddit.com/r/AV1 | 26 Jan 2023
Announcing Rust 1.67.0
10 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 26 Jan 2023
rav1e is quite well maintained, the fix for the lint was merged days after the ilog PR merged. But the 0.5.1 release of rav1e was one year ago, in December 2021, while the ilog rename was end of August 2022. There hadn't been a release though of rav1e until end of November 2022, which was also a semver incompatible one. Users had only 2-ish months of time to get to the new rav1e version without experiencing breakage.
Symphonia: Audio decoding in safe Rust, now often faster than FFmpeg!
2 projects | reddit.com/r/linux | 24 Jan 2023
The rav1e encoder for AV1 has more assembly in it than Rust, which also doesn't bode well for memory-safe video codec implementations. But this might change once Rust provides portable and memory-safe explicit SIMD.

Obviously not super important, but would be super cool to see AV1 encode/decode support added. There's a great rust library for this too : https://github.com/xiph/rav1e
Is there any clear documentation on how to make avif collections and how to read them?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/AV1 | 24 Apr 2023
As far as I understand you are talking about this plugin. I don't know c++ and half of the code was like a black magic, but if I get it correctly, it encodes your images with libavif, and adds custom metadata ([solar/time of day] -> json -> base64).
FSF Slams Google over Dropping JPEG-XL in Chrome
10 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 16 Apr 2023
So a few dozen comments, but so far it doesn't look like any mention the immediate thing that jumped out at me which was the claims vs AVIF:
>"In turn, what users will be given is yet another facet of the web that Google itself controls: the AVIF format."
Huh? I'll admit I haven't been following codecs as super ultra closely as I used to, but I thought AOM was a pretty broad coalition of varying interests and AV1 an open, royalty free codec that was plenty open source friendly? I've heard plenty of reasonable arguments that JPEG XL has some real technical advantages over AVIF and as well as superior performance is much more feature rich and scalable. So I could see people being bummed for that. But this is the first time I've heard the assertion that it's somehow a Google project? I mean, AOM's libavif reference is BSD too ? I'd love some more details on that from anyone who has been following this more closely. I can even understand if AOM isn't as community friendly and an accusation that it's dominated by big corps, but in that case why single out Google alone? From wiki:
>The governing members of the Alliance for Open Media are Amazon, Apple, ARM, Cisco, Facebook, Google, Huawei, Intel, Microsoft, Mozilla, Netflix, Nvidia, Samsung Electronics and Tencent.
Like, Google is certainly significant, but that's a lot of equally heavy hitters. And interesting that Mozilla is there too.
JPEG XL support has officially been removed from Chromium

> You have a good point that AVIF layered image items can act like such P/B-frames. Do libavif (or other AVIF implementations if any) make use of them?
Seemingly. As search for "libavif progressive encoding" shows several issues about this, and a search for "progressive" in https://github.com/AOMediaCodec/libavif/blob/main/include/av... shows an enum for avifProgressiveState, appears to show support for it.
Animated AVIF and JXL tools for Windows
2 projects | reddit.com/r/AV1 | 20 Nov 2022
Apart from mpv and ffplay, the only software I currently have installed that can play animated AVIF is Chromium. And from what I've read from this libavif bug report, I'm not sure if looping animated files in general is something that's just done by default by a lot of software regardless of whether the file is marked as a loop or not.

What is AVIF?
6 projects | dev.to | 26 Apr 2022
The Alliance for Open Media's AVIF encoding and decoding library is also in a Github repo. Sharp, a Node module, has AVIF support. To make AVIF images, you can use avif.io, Squoosh, and the Squoosh command line tool aimed at supporting Node.js apps. GIMP and Paint.net support AVIF and there are Photoshop plugins. Mac has no plans to support AVIF, but you can easily install a codec plugin on Windows 10 for native support.
