xvc - a next-generation video codec at xvc.io

We have quite recently launched the new next-generation video codec xvc at xvc.io. The complete source code for encoding and decoding is available at GitHub with the development happening in the dev branch: https://github.com/divideon/xvc/tree/dev.

The xvc codec is free to use for everyone for personal use, evaluations and research. There is also a commercial license available.

The ambition is for xvc to be the world's most efficient video codec while still keeping decoding complexity at a reasonable level in order to support efficient software decoding on various platforms.

In an article about xvc, Streaming Media comments on the performance of xvc as "Pretty impressive performance" with xvc being the quality leader compared to HEVC, H.264, VP9 and AV1 for the two "real-world files".

Please try it out and share what you think of it. All sorts of feedback is highly appreciated. The encoder has not yet been optimized for speed and is currently very slow (unless your point of reference is AV1, in which case the xvc encoder is actually very fast ).
