Jean-Baptiste Kempf who is a well-known multimedia developer and President of the VideoLAN shared about the upcoming FFmpeg 6.0 version and dav1d v1.1 at FOSDEM 2023 last weekend. What is FFmpeg? FFmpeg is the short form of Fast Forward Moving Picture Experts Group. It is a free and open-source software project that offers many tools for handling and manipulating multimedia data. It is programmed to manipulate and handle the entire process of transcoding, video and image manipulation, packaging, streaming, and playback. The features for the upcoming FFmpeg 6.0! Last winter, the development team launched FFmpeg 5.0. After now they focused on FFmpeg 6.0 which is expected to be released this winter. Intel, Nvidia, and AMD graphics cards will have support for AV1 hardware decoding performance. In addition, FFmpeg 6.0 will add FFmpeg CLI multithreading support for the FFmpeg command line. It will have the RISC-V architecture optimised and x86 and ARM architecture will get a new highly-optimized FFT Code with SIMD. It will also have many more changes like API, channel layouts and codec changes. This means that overall AV1 encoding and decoding on ARM architecture computers like Apple's M1 and M2 chips as well as newer Intel x86 chips might get significantly better! Jean-Baptiste Kempf also gave a glimpse of upcoming new codecs and filters, media enhancements for Android, and major tasks about FFmpeg CLI multithreading. The FFmpeg project is still committed to delivering one major release of ABI/API breakthrough every year, followed by a maintenance release. FFmpeg LTS releases are still scheduled to be released every two years. FFmpeg 7.1 will release in 2024.
