Adapt to multi-codec world or die, warns Bitmovin as AV1 escalates

Observing the video ecosystem from the video developer perspective is often overlooked, overshadowed somewhat by those higher up, so it was refreshing to read a report from encoding expert Bitmovin – giving the devs a well-deserved voice. Results from Bitmovin’s third annual developer survey showed an expectantly overwhelming reliance on H.264, although interestingly one-in-five developers plan to implement AV1 in 2020 – with big ramifications for the wider video industry. Device manufacturers, browser vendors, and content distributers like Cisco, Mozilla, and YouTube have already started implementing AV1 on larger scales, leading Bitmovin to conclude that AV1 is well positioned to compete with H.265/HEVC and to succeed VP9 for open-source use cases in 2020. This goes against the majority of conversations…

It's all "conservative politics", even in technology

What's conservative about adapting, or am I missing something in the full article?

If x265 and nvenc are the last encoders relevant for home users then I will miss building encoder GUIs, the first generations were painful but the last two generations were quite fun.

There isn't anything codec-specific about nvenc. NVidia supports HW decode for multiple codecs, and can add more.

Something like 85% of new phones have HEVC HW decode, and we don't even have a release date for the first phone SoC that does hardware AV1. UHD Blu-ray and ATSC 3.0 are HEVC. There is going to be a substantial market for HEVC for a decade or more, just like there is still quite a lot of MPEG-2 still being encoded and delivered, and just like there will be a lot of H.264 for years too.

Heck, there was still Windows Media PlaysForSure content being published as of 2-3 years ago.

The usual threshold of hardware encoders is the limited temporal complexity. This hurts more for more advanced codecs taking more advantage of temporal redundancies. NVEnc may be a useful realtime encoder for AVC and HEVC. But it will be beaten easily if you can encode "offline" and spend more efforts into looking ahead.

There is lot of interest right now for HEVC 8k real time for the next sport events..

Phoronix has more benchmark numbers of SVT-AV1 v0.5 and dav1d v0.3, this time with the 48-core EPYC 7642:
