Intel graphics back to Broadwell continue to be supported by this open-source video acceleration stack for Linux users.

The Meteor Lake support with this new release has enabled AV1 video encoding for a new error-resilient mode. There is also improved AVC / HEVC / AV1 video decoding robustness to better handle possible errors.

The Intel Media Driver 2023Q1 release also fixes VP9 video encoding that could lead to a segmentation fault with unaligned resolutions as well as a case of fixing random crashes with multi-VPP usage.
