    Thanks for this. I'll stick to Flatpak, because it has version 2.10.28, whereas the standard repository has only 2.10.18. I'm not going to compile the stuff myself — it's too complicated for me

    And this https://github.com/novomesk/qt-avif-image-plugin

    I tested in on Ubuntu 20.04 with nomacs, it works (nomacs is a qt app from the repo, not kde dependencies)

    Thanks. I've got it working with the other PPA.

    I think that I should raise this as a bug, to encourage AVIF support to be built into the next LTS (22.04).
