Hi Multimedia mailing list,


Quick question about ffmpeg and hardware transcoding with 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?

1.	DRM module loaded
2.	Correct permission for the application on /dev/dri/renderD128
3.	FFmpeg build with libva support (VAAPI on)


Are there any more I am missing? I saw another driver in ports as

Is that one also required? Thanks in advance!
