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?

Hi,
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"
https://demo.bitmovin.com/public/firefox/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 https://code.videolan.org/videolan/dav1d
