        Would be awesome if this get upstream. Also i wish that we see AMD VCE and Intel QuickSync Support.

          VCE support is already there in OpenMAX while QuickSync is in VA-API.

          NVIDIA is actually slow to response with another vendor specific API.

            And both are Linux Only. But only of interest, how can ffmpeg use openmax or vaapi for encoding?

              OpenMAX and VAAPI are cross-platform.
              However, the underlying hardware can still be accessed via other platform specific APIs.

              ffmpeg should be able to utilize them for encoding, just like how it utilizes vaapi for decoding, or how gstreamer uses openmax for decoding and encoding.

                No!

                VA API/libVA is available at least on the *BSDs too.
                At least OpenMAX IL/Bellagio is available on FreeBSD.

                  That not an answer of my question. And Yes you are right, vaapi and openmax are cross platform but non of the vendors support this apis on windows.

                  But back to my question: How to use openmax or va-api for encoding in ffmpeg.

                    Oh, I see: the whole os world consists only of Windows and Linux.

                      Yes, and now you can troll somewhere else.
