Implement AV1 video codec and Opus audio codec
We all know that AVC has issues with efficiency an HEVC is basically dead.
A more modern codec would not only be great for streamers and high definition content, it would also potentially reduce the load on the servers.
Benefits with AV1:
- It's open source so no license costs like HEVC
- It's much more efficient than AVC and even HEVC
Benefits of Opus:
- Basically the same as AV1

twitch need to support vp9 hevc av1 video and oggVorbis Opus aptx audio codec
Firefox, Chrome and Edge already support AV1, and Twitch talked about using it, starting in a few years.
Opus would be a good addition.
