Intel has published a new version of its oneVPL library as its open-source oneAPI Video Processing Library for video encoding/decoding and media processing across CPUs, GPUs, and other accelerators.

The oneVPL library is Intel's modern solution for video encode/decode and processing on both Windows and Linux and for both CPU and GPU-based execution. The oneVPL dispatcher implementation allows targeting CPUs, Intel Media SDK for older generations of iGPUs, and native oneVPL targets for Tigerlake and newer and being open to supporting other hardware targets in the future.

With the oneVPL 2023.1 release it now implements the oneVPL API 2.8 specification, adds a new infer sample supports the XDG_Shell protocol on the Weston 10 compositor, and has several bug fixes.

The oneVPL 2.8 API specification adds 16-bit floating point 4:4:4 ABGR format support, a Camera Processing API for camera RAW data, a hint is available to disable external video frame caching for GPU copies, new experimental APIs, and other improvements to the spec.
