are there any streaming services currently using AV1? I know its better, but I haven't heard of anything about people actively using it yet
it’s a chicken-and-egg problem because of hardware decoding support. i think netflix was experimenting with it on playstation and some tv models. twitch also had a presentation on it years ago. modern chips can decode it even in software but nobody wants to eat through the battery faster.
