Hi everyone,

Today, I'm sharing yet another AV1-encoded video using rav1e. As usual, it was encoded with parameters -q 175 -s 0. This video started encoding at 7:29:10 PM yesterday and concluded at 5:01:07 AM today. Enjoy and let me know what do you think of the quality:

I've also updated rav1e_gui to include this rav1e build. Download at the rav1e_gui page.

Hi everyone,

Yesterday, I started encoding one video I recorded in 2011. The encode started at 12:39:28 PM yesterday and finished at 9:50:41 AM today. Encode settings where -q 175 -s0 and the audio is encoded using opus at a bitrate of 64kb. The resulting size of this video is just 12.9MB! See it below:

The video was encoded using my tool, rav1e_gui

Hi everyone,

Today, I've released a new version of rav1e_gui:


This version adds a piece seconds parameter that you can modify to split the video file into the specified seconds amount part. This gives you greater control on how long should the parts be to encode them to AV1 using rav1e.

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I had my first experience writing code in Rust. I decided to implement 2 command-line options for the rav1e AV1 encoder software that I've been playing around for some days.

The encoder currently encodes files with a keyframe every 30 frames. This value is hardcoded into the code and can't be changed by the user unless it is changed at the code and rav1e is compiled again. Also, there is a new option which is called "Compound mode" in the source code, which can also be enabled or disabled by sending a boolean value of true or false.

New rav1e build and updated rav1e_gui (2018/10/23)

Hi everyone,

Today, I've compiled the latest rav1e source code, bringing it to commit 6bfa0aa:


I'm releasing 2 versions of today's build. One which have compound mode turned on by default and another one with it disabled. The source code originally has this disabled (reorder=false). You can download both versions here:
