Is anyone else having trouble getting
VDPAU working on their machine? From what I’m reading the hardware (i7-1165G7 in this case) is supposed to support it fine.
I’ve followed the guide for setting it up, but I just get:
libva error: /usr/lib/dri/iHD_drv_video.so has no function __vaDriverInit_1_0
vaInitialize failed with error code -1 (unknown libva error),exit
When I run
That’s using the
intel-media-driver and with
LIBVA_DRIVER_NAME=iHD set globally.

libva-intel-driver but got the same error.
I’ve also enabled Early KMS Start after reading that it might be related.
Am I missing anything obvious?

@Robert_Ricci I think you’re right. It seems to be working now (according to
mesa 22.0.1-3 and
Now to get firefox to actually use the hardware decoding…
@BenVosper Did you find a way to use hardware encoding on firefox?
I know vaapi is woking, checking with
Followed this archwiki to let firefox use vaapi (hardware decoding), but I don’t seem to get it working.
MPV and VLC work with vaapi no problem, check with
sudo intel_gpu_top command.
