Just very quickly, I was maybe a little clumsy in my last post and I wanted
to rectify.Just based on what I have read, it seems for me that AOM AV1
decoder can be implemented in mobile devices, but for the encoder, that is
ultra good but also very very complex, not sure if mobile device
manufacturers will choose it as default encoder for shooting videos in a
battery operated device for example.

But this is only my personal opinion.Do not hesitate to correct me if it's
