--- Comment #3 from Jan Beich <jbeich at FreeBSD.org> ---
AV1 *en*coder is left. aom is the most complete and stable encoder compared to
rav1e or SVT-AV1 but it only reached that point *after* 1.0.0. Enabling AOM
option by default would imply frequent ffmpeg rebuilds due to aom updates.
OTOH, ffmpeg had a lot of rebuilds recently due to ABI changes, so it may not
be as bad as it seems. Going by libvpx history Google isn't particularly
committed in maintaining standalone releases compared to whatever (snapshot) is
bundled in Chromium (e.g., see mXY branches for Chromium XY milestones), so
downstream sometimes have to patch vulnerabilities for months.
