      Nope. Scroll to the bottom of the github page at the end of the article, and you'll also find mac images & source code

        No no, I mean that I don't think any of the changes mentioned in the article applies to the Linux version, the changes are Windows only...

        For example supported with AMD AMF on Windows and not with Linux VAAPI.

          Oh. I see what you mean now.

            Are you sure about that? OBS seems to support AMD hardware encoders using ffmpeg?

              Use the linux AMF encoder, vastly better than VAAPI anyway. Downside is you need to install vulkan pro.

              No mention of native support for the AMF encoder yet from what I see so will need to use a custom build or add the streamfx pluggin to use it.

                I get the impression that it shouldn't be too hard for the Mesa RADV developers to add whatever interface is needed to work with the AMF library. Still, someone needs to figure it out and do it... But hey, they added support for Radeon Raytracing Analyzer so why not?!

                  Indeed, I guess it needs a closed library or some such which may be whats holding it up.

                    I don't understand this push against VAAPI and in favour of vendor specific APIs for hardware encoding and decoding. I liked it when everything that was not VAAPI a bridge was made.
