Notably, there's now a native VVC decoder, though it's still marked as experimental until further fuzzing is conducted for stability assurance.

This addition is particularly noteworthy due to VVC's potential to offer superior compression efficiency compared to existing codecs like H.265 (HEVC), potentially leading to higher-quality video streaming at reduced bitrates.

Additionally, FFmpeg 7.0 brings IAMF (Integrated Adaptive Multi-Frame) support, which has the potential to improve video quality and compression efficiency by analyzing and adjusting frames across multiple frames.

This feature is expected to enhance video playback smoothness and reduce artifacts, especially in scenarios with high motion or complex scenes.

Another significant addition is the introduction of a multi-threaded ffmpeg command-line interface (CLI) tool.

This enhancement enables faster processing of multimedia tasks by utilizing multiple CPU cores simultaneously, resulting in improved performance and reduced processing times for tasks such as transcoding, filtering, and encoding.

From advanced codec compatibility to optimized processing performance, FFmpeg 7.0 offers a more versatile and robust multimedia framework for both professionals and enthusiasts alike.
