Overnight Intel released their oneVPL GPU Runtime 2024Q1 release for this media stack component to their oneAPI software collection.

The oneVPL GPU Runtime is Intel's Video Processing Library for Intel integrated/discrete graphics for accelerated encode/decode and filtering. The oneVPL GPU Runtime builds atop VA-API to allow for AV1, VP9, AVC, VP8, and other formats supported for accelerated encode/decode.

With the oneVPL GPU Runtime 2024Q1 release there are improvements for AV1, an important fix for VP9, and various other changes:
- Fixed stuck issue for VP9 decoding
- Fixed MPEG2 and JPEG decoding crash issue
- Refined AV1 encoding reference frame structure for low delay frames to improve encoding quality
- Enabled AV1 encoding additional forward reference for P/GPB frames on TU1
