Microsoft says that while the encoder will work properly in Windows 10, there is also the possibility of minor problems in system performance when playing AV1 video. But (if you reassure), Microsoft promised to improve the codec in the next updates.
This is premature release, and you may see some performance problems when playing AV1 video. We continue to improve this expansion. If you allow your apps to automatically update, you will receive the latest updates and enhancements when we release them.
