Im confused. Are anyone of you getting this to work?
After loading the new driver vainfo only reports MPEG2 support.
libva: libva version 0.32.0
libva: va_getDriverName() returns 0
libva: Trying to open /usr/lib/dri/i965_drv_video.so
libva: va_openDriver() returns 0
vainfo: VA API version: 0.32
vainfo: Driver version: i965 Driver 0.1
vainfo: Supported profile and entrypoints
VAProfileMPEG2Simple : VAEntrypointVLD
VAProfileMPEG2Main : VAEntrypointVLD
I think I have the right graphics adapter:
$ lspci -s 00:02 -nn
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller : Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:2a42] (rev 07)
00:02.1 Display controller : Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:2a43] (rev 07)
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Today on the vaapi-mailinglist:
"No hardware acceleration for H.264 on your system, you should update
So I installed kernel from debian-weezy.
Now the vainfo shows H264-entrypoints.
xbmc however crashes and on mplayer-vaapi im hitting the "drm/i915: fix user irq miss in BSD ring on g4x"-bug.
Will continue to post updates to my progress.
In doing so I could finally get vainfo to show the h264-entrypoints. My XBMC crashes upon loading video tho. And mplayer-vaapi seem to hit the DRM-bug. Im investigating further and will post any updates.
Did you get it to work? Will it ever be merged to master?
Any news here?
So is there any way to make the va acceleration work on linux?
Thanks a lot!
