Does Microsoft Edge Support AV1 Codec?

Iron Contributor

Does Microsoft Edge browser in any channel, Canary, Dev, or Beta support AV1 Codec? If yes, how to enable it? If not, is there any chance to get in future?

it doesn't appear so.
testing on Edge canary Version 84.0.480.0 (Official build) canary (64-bit)
I get the message "This browser does not seem to support AV1"
on Firefox 76 i can play the video.

yeah, would be nice to have av1 support, both for youtube and in general


i understand dav1d has a pretty permissive license

Yes. As long as you update to Microsoft Edge (since Windows 10 October 2018 Update (1809). you can download the av1 video extension from microsoft store and then play it with your movie & tv app.
It used to, but they disabled support after 105.0.1343.27, now we're already on 119.0.2151.24 and they still didn't reenabled.
