Please put AV1 support on your roadmap. AV1 adds a massive increase in quality while having a much lower bitrate and filesize compared to h.264 (.mp4). Massive companies like AMD, ARM, Intel, NVIDIA, Google, Microsoft, Mozilla, Netflix and Amazon have already pledged their support. Also, no license from the MPEG media group is needed, it's fully open source.

An example of AV1 v.s. h.264 (click to enlarge):


This could put you miles ahead of the competition if you jump on this early. The codec will be finished by the end of this year.
