The developers working on the FFmpeg multimedia library have finally implemented support for VA-API accelerated video encoding.

In the past week developers have landed support for VA-API GPU-based video encoding for H.264, H.265, and MJPEG.

This Video Acceleration API encoding support in FFmpeg will be primarily of benefit to Intel Linux users. Those wanting to know how to make use of VA-API encoding with FFmpeg, there's a mailing list post this weekend to explain the necessary switches.
