    It took really long this time. I wonder if Ubuntu will update ffmpeg for next release. Basically they have to use a workaround for Skylake in the kernel too. One mobile Broadwell user still complains about stability issues, Debian is currently not optimal to debug because of huge underlying changes.

      Nobody likes to touch libva/VAAPI, it's the most horrible library I have ever seen. And Intel isn't too interested in getting support for stuff like this.
      They usualy add stuff to gstreamer, and that's about it.

      This only finaly happend because Team Kodi donated hardware under the premise to add support for this to ffmpeg.

      My NUC5PPYH is now able to playback 4K content at 60 fps via Kodi(It can't output it though, because it only supports HDMI 1.4), the lower-end Braswell nuc reportedly has some issues with framedrops, as the GPU is a bit weaker.
