New: Play live streams and recordings using the AV1 codec (open beta)

We’re excited to announce that you can now play live streams and their recordings served by Cloudflare Stream using the AV1 codec.

Read more about how AV1 used dramatically less bandwidth in our announcement blog post, or get started with the docs.

AV1 playback is currently in open beta — we’d love for you to experiment with it and tell us what you think. Hop into the Stream Discord channel and tell us what you’re building and what sparked your interest in AV1.


This is a step in a good direction for open standards. Thanks @irvinebroque.
