Description rozhuk.im 2018-12-20 03:52:31 UTC
Please, make dav1d AV1 decoder default AV1 decoder then ffmpeg build with dav1d and aom.

I take first 2 video in 4k AV1 here https://www.elecard.com/videos
and aom decode it with lags, low rate fps, on ryzen 2700x.
Same time then I build ffmpeg with dav1d and without aom - all ok.
If build with with dav1d and with aom - low fps/drops.
Comment 1 Jan Beich freebsd_committer 2018-12-20 19:50:02 UTC
dav1d performance on i386 appears to be worse than aom. Tested on Intel i7-6700K (Skylake) via 11.2 i386 jail on 13.0 amd64 host. Neither CPUTYPE?=native nor -tilethreads help much.

$ fetch https://www.elecard.com/storage/video/Stream2_AV1_4K_22.7mbps.webm
$ ffmpeg -c:v libdav1d -i Stream2_AV1_4K_22.7mbps.webm -f null /dev/null
$ ffmpeg -c:v libaom-av1 -i Stream2_AV1_4K_22.7mbps.webm -f null /dev/null

Created attachment 200318 [details]

ffmpeg appears to derive default codec based on sorting order.
Comment 3 rozhuk.im 2018-12-20 23:06:21 UTC
Patch work ok, thanks!

libaom-av1 - 425% CPU and 22 FPS
libdav1d - 230-300% CPU and 32-38 FPS
