  • NotEnoughAV1Encodes-Qt

    Linux GUI for AV1 Encoders

    Do you do any videos? I've been playing with the AV1 codec using 'NotEnoughAV1Encodes'

  • ffmpeg-quality-metrics

    Calculate quality metrics with FFmpeg (SSIM, PSNR, VMAF, VIF)

    This directory has a short video I took with my Nikon DSLR along with two encodes of that video and the VMAF/SSIM scores from ffmpeg-quality-metrics. (the av1 video is mislabeled, it's actually av1 with CRF 28 like the vmaf/ssim file says) I know people hate the 'e' word, but if I were encoding something with bandwidth in mind I'd probably be fine using AV1, except not everything supports it. I've been told Edge isn't AV1 friendly, for example.
