SVT-AV1 GUI v1.5 has been released!

Hi everyone,

Today, I have released SVT-AV1 GUI v1.5:

SVT-AV1 GUI v1.5 Main Window
SVT-AV1 GUI v1.5 Main Window

This new version moves the HME options to a new Advanced Options window and adds a new setting for specifying the GOP type:

SVT-AV1 GUI v1.5 Advanced Options
SVT-AV1 GUI v1.5 Advanced Options

By default, the GOP Type will be Closed which allows seeking in the video. SVT-AV1 uses the Open type by default and the resulting videos in the previous SVT-AV1 GUI versions would have problems seeking. This is now solved by this new option.

Additionally, this version have the following improvements:

  • The First pass encoding will be skipped if the software was interrupted while performing the second pass encode.
  • A bug in the second pass where the additional arguments were not passed correctly has been fixed.

You can download this new version on GitHub by clicking here. The new version comes bundled with the newest SVT-AV1 release, which I’ve built yesterday using the media-autobuild_suite.

Enjoy!
