Hello Multimedia mailing list,


Quick question about ffmpeg and hardware transcoding wit the new DRM drivers
for intel based IGPU's.

What is the minimum requirements for being able to utilize quick sync on my
intel chip for ffmpeg hardware transcoding?

Is the only requirement that the drm module is loaded and ffmpeg is linked
against libva? (VAAPI support is ON)?

Or is something more required? I saw another driver in ports as

Is that one also required? Thanks in advance!
