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.

There should be some major rav1e improvements in the not-so-distant future that should benefit high fidelity encoding very nicely (https://github.com/xiph/rav1e/pull/2921). And I hope someday someone gets 10/12 bit tune butteraugli working in aomenc, should provide a massive efficiency boost in pretty much all scenarios.
[rav1e git] Avoid temporary allocation of block importance costs (Small speed increase for rav1e, about 20-40% faster across speed 3 to speed 10)

H.264 is magic: a technical walkthrough
9 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 17 Mar 2022
There's 3 that I know of,
libaom https://aomedia.googlesource.com/aom, the reference implementation.
https://gitlab.com/AOMediaCodec/SVT-AV1 - from the Alliance for Open Media, which Intel is deeply involved with and is spending a lot of time optimising.
https://github.com/xiph/rav1e - written in rust, also subject to a lot of optimising. It's not complete coverage of all features, intended to be used for places where libaom is too slow.
AV1 codec report
2 projects | reddit.com/r/AV1 | 28 Feb 2022
AV1 currently gets used by Netflix, YouTube (right click on any big popular video "stats for nerds) and so on. It's open source and currently has 3 different encoders. AOM as it's reference encoder available here: https://aomedia.googlesource.com/ as well as SVT-AV1 as the production encoder (like x265 for H265) available here: https://gitlab.com/AOMediaCodec/SVT-AV1 and Rav1e as community project which I personally don't have a use for at all: https://github.com/xiph/rav1e
Symphonia v0.5: ALAC, MKV, & gapless playback support

Not AFAIK. The only relevant effort I'm aware of is rav1e, and it has more assembly in it than Rust.
Firefox now supports AV1 VA-API playback

No. There are hardware encoders. For software encoding while AV1's reference encoder is very slow; both rav1e and SVT-AV1 are usable on a higher end PC built in the last few years.
I'm giving out microgrants to open source projects for the third year in a row! Brag about your projects here so I can see them, big or small!

I'm going to promote rav1e, an AV1 encoder written in Rust+ASM. Unlike the reference encoder, rav1e seeks to focus on psychovisual quality rather than pure metrics, and so to many people it is a promising alternative. However, it has some catching up to do in the speed department.

AOM AV1 encoder/decoder in Debian needs update to enable AVIF saving
3 projects | reddit.com/r/debian | 19 Oct 2021
libavif supports building selected dependencies locally. I have a script which builds static libaom to be bundled into libavif together with libyuv. It was necessary to add -DCONFIG_PIC=1 https://github.com/novomesk/qt-avif-image-plugin/blob/master/ext/build_local_libaom_libavif.sh Does Debian allow bundled dependencies? Because that would be a possibility how to build feature complete libavif.
How to open AVIF image format?
3 projects | reddit.com/r/linuxmint | 11 Oct 2021
KDE apps (for example gwenview) are able to open AVIF when new versions of the following packages are installed: shared-mime-info, libavif, kimageformats When you have old packages, you can still register image/avif mime-type manually and to build/install the Qt plug-in manually. If you want to try it, read manual How to install AVIF support in KDE https://github.com/novomesk/qt-avif-image-plugin
