FFmpeg Lands VA-API AV1 Decode Support Led By Intel
The FFmpeg patch we talked about back in September has now been merged for allowing AV1 decode over the VA-API interface with this widely-used multimedia library.
The Intel-contributed work was merged on Monday.
This VA-API AV1 support for FFmpeg is on top of many other FFmpeg feature additions in recent months. Hopefully the next FFmpeg release will make it out sooner rather than later. Also in this next FFmpeg release from Intel is GPU-based OpenVINO inference.
