Ok, I guess the new version of GomPlayer already has AV1 codec built-in feature.
Question is how to play AV1 codec videos in and old version of GomPlayer?
I'm reluctant to update versions of some softwares and I'd like to keep current one (18.104.22.16878).
It's common to happen that newer versions are worse than what the previous one.
Youtube is using this new codec in some videos when I download them with InternetDownloadManager.
I can play such videos using VLC v. 22.214.171.124, but can't do the same with GomPlayer.
Is there a way to install that codec to the whole system?
I'm still using Windows 7 SP1.

If GomPlayer can use DirectShow codecs and you can find a DirectShow AV1 decoder -- that should work. Can you give a link to a Youtube video that uses AV1? I haven't seen one yet.

I still have this same problem. I am a newbie and am confused by the supposed solution to this problem. I followed the links and think I have correctly located and installed the suggested codecs. But I guess I don't know how to get my old GOM Player (v.2.1.5) to utilize them and play the video (audio is fine) of the av1/AOM files I download. I can play them with other players I have but my preferred player is still the old GOM Player. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
