The VA-API (Video Acceleration API) enables hardware accelerated video
decode/encode at various entry-points (VLD, IDCT, Motion Compensation
etc.) for the prevailing coding standards today (MPEG-2, MPEG-4
ASP/H.263, MPEG-4 AVC/H.264, and VC-1/WMV3). It provides an interface
to fully expose the video decode capabilities in today's GPUs.
This package contains the video decode and encode driver backend for
the Intel HD Graphics of the Intel Core processor family. The supported
platforms include:
* Broadwell
* Skylake
* Broxton
* Apollo Lake
* Kaby Lake
* Coffee Lake
* Whiskey Lake
* Cannon Lake
* Ice Lake
Only a limited set of encoders is available via this driver: JPEG
(Skylake and newer), AVC (Boxton and newer), HEVC and VP9 (Ice Lake and
newer). Media shaders are only available on Ice Lake and newer.
This driver needs to be enabled manually by setting
