How to Enable AV1 Video Support on YouTube

AOMedia Video 1 (AV1) is an open, royalty-free video coding format designed for video transmissions over the Internet. It is being developed by the Alliance for Open Media (AOMedia), a consortium of firms from the semiconductor industry, video on demand providers, and web browser developers, founded in 2015. The AV1 bitstream specification includes a reference video codec.

The AV1 video codec provides advanced compression, bringing you smoother streaming in HD and data savings for more video on the go.

YouTube has published an AV1 Beta launch playlist of the first videos to receive YouTube’s AV1 transcodes. These transcodes are encoded at a very high bitrate for decoder performance testing.

Because it is new, streaming AV1 in HD requires a powerful computer, and only some videos have AV1 available at this time.

This tutorial will show you how to enable AV1 video support on YouTube for your account in Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.

  • SmartScreen Filter checks files that you download from the web against a list of reported malicious software sites and programs known to be unsafe. If it finds a match, SmartScreen Filter will warn you that the download has been blocked for your safety. SmartScreen Filter also checks the files that you download against a list of files that are well known and downloaded by many Microsoft Edge users. If the file that you’re downloading isn’t on that list, SmartScreen Filter will warn you.

By default, Windows Defender SmartScreen will allow you to “Disregard and continue” in warnings about potentially malicious websites in Microsoft Edge.

How to Enable or Disable Send Do Not Track Requests in Microsoft Edge in Windows 10

Microsoft Edge is a new web browser that is available across the Windows 10 device family. It is designed for Windows 10 to be faster, safer, and compatible with the modern Web.

Tracking refers to the way that websites, third-party content providers, advertisers, and others learn about how you interact with sites. This might include keeping track of what pages you visit, links you click, and products you buy or review. This helps these sites offer personalized content like ads or recommendations, but it also means that your browsing activity is being collected, and often it’s shared with other companies.
