Mozilla: ‘AV1 makes high-quality video affordable for all’

Open Internet software specialist Mozilla has explained its support for the AV1 video codec, suggesting that the royalty-free codec can help keep high-quality video affordable for everyone.

In a Blog Post, Mozilla notes that it costs money to watch video online, even on free sites such as YouTube. “That’s because about four in five videos on the web today rely on a patented technology called the H.264 video codec,” explains writer Judy DeMocker.
