    Phoronix: VA-API AV1 Decode Lands In Mesa 21.3 Gallium3D

    The change led by AMD engineers for adding AV1 VA-API acceleration support to the Gallium3D "VA" state tracker front-end has landed in Mesa 21.3...

      In regards to GUIs, yeah. Command line, Linux is probably a bit better (but I'm biased towards a Linux CLI).

        Hm, somehow I'd don't have even H264 acceleration on my 6700XT with Mesa 21.1.7... does any one have any suggestions why?

        Code:
        $ vainfo
        libva info: VA-API version 1.11.0
        libva info: Trying to open /usr/lib64/dri/radeonsi_drv_video.so
        libva info: Found init function __vaDriverInit_1_11
        libva info: va_openDriver() returns 0
        vainfo: VA-API version: 1.11 (libva 2.11.0)
        vainfo: Driver version: Mesa Gallium driver 21.1.7 for AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT (NAVY_FLOUNDER, DRM 3.41.0, 5.13.10-200.fc34.x86_64, LLVM 12.0.1)
        vainfo: Supported profile and entrypoints
        VAProfileMPEG2Simple : VAEntrypointVLD
        VAProfileMPEG2Main : VAEntrypointVLD
        VAProfileNone : VAEntrypointVideoProc
        Code:
        $ vdpauinfo
        display: :0 screen: 0
        API version: 1
        Information string: G3DVL VDPAU Driver Shared Library version 1.0

          I think that I have the same issue. I've the same card, hardware decoding doesn't work on 5.13 Linux kernel, and I have the same output of vainfo. When I go back on 5.12, it works.

            There are a lot of things that AMD gets right. Getting VA-API AV-1 is a good example. Thank you AMD.

            Linux GUIs is one thing that AMD gets very, very wrong. They are not on the scene and they are nowhere in sight.

              What about encoding?

                You cannot encode realtime.

                  I meant GUI video editing/transcoding/etc software in general; not just an AMD GUI (which would be nice). Windows (and macOS) is just better than Linux in that category. While they both seem to have a lot of the same lower level tools like FFMPEG, x264, mencoder, etc, GUIs are a totally different story. Sometimes they work with Wine, sometimes they don't. I've settled with Linux tools since 2015 so what may or may not work with Wine is very much different than the last time I tried.

                    Would Firefox be able to use this?
