Following this morning's article about running GStreamer over VA-API on Wayland, Gwenole Beauchesne of Intel wrote in about some new VA-API package releases.

At the end of last week, Gwenole released libva 1.1.0, libva-vdpau-driver 0.7.4, and gstreamer-vaapi 0.4.0.

Version 1.1.0 of the VA-API library (libva) supports Wayland, adds in raw DRM support for head-less pipelines, fixes the VA/GLX implementation for newer Cluttersink versions, fixes threading issues in VA objects reference code, and fixes building VA-API on Google's Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich release.

Released at the same time was libva-vdpau-driver 0.7.4, which now uses the upstream libva version, avoids an X11 socket leak, fixes MPEG-2 decoding from GStreamer-VAAPI, fixes compatibility glue, fixes the sub-picture blender state, fixes multi-threaded issues, and adds support for global-alpha sub-pictures.

Lastly, the new gstreamer-vaapi 0.4.0 release introduces support for video rotation, new video display APIs for Wayland and the raw DRM, drops FFmpeg-based decoders to instead only use codecparser-based decoders, the decoder is now only reset if meaningful capabilities are changed, allocating the minimal number of video surfaces useful for decoding is done, and there's two fixes considering vaapisink and vaapidecode. There's also now support for windowed mode with the Wayland back-end.

These announcements were made on the VA-API mailing list.
