AOM AV1 encoder/decoder in Debian needs update to enable AVIF saving

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/debian

Our great sponsors
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SonarLint - Deliver Cleaner and Safer Code - Right in Your IDE of Choice!
  • OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels
  • rav1e

    The fastest and safest AV1 encoder.

    This issue could additionally be solved by packaging rav1e, which libavif can use for encoding. Getting it included in Debian is a goal of the project: https://github.com/xiph/rav1e/issues/886

  • qt-avif-image-plugin

    Qt plug-in to allow Qt and KDE based applications to read/write AVIF images.

    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.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • cargo-c

    build and install C-compatible libraries

    Beside rav1e there is need also for cargo-c, so that rav1e can provide C-compatible library.
