Thank you for your reply. I tried with gpu-context=wayland but it yields the same error as with the defaults (gpu-context=auto).

    The value auto (the default) selects the GPU context. You can also pass help to get a complete list of compiled in backends (sorted by autoprobe order).

    auto-select (default)

read more: it helps …perhaps ;)

Running under Wayland, I cannot manage to make video hardware acceleration work. I have the same error than brikler here, with the same configuration when using mpv. In addition it makes my Wayland session crash.

If I try to set vo=vaapi, I get the same error than fine2006 under XWayland.

Tested on a H264 encoded video.

Here is my setup:

$ vainfo
vainfo: VA-API version: 1.15 (libva 2.15.0)
vainfo: Driver version: Intel i965 driver for Intel(R) GM45 Express Chipset - 2.4.1
vainfo: Supported profile and entrypoints
      VAProfileMPEG2Simple            : VAEntrypointVLD
      VAProfileMPEG2Main              : VAEntrypointVLD
      VAProfileH264ConstrainedBaseline: VAEntrypointVLD
      VAProfileH264Main               : VAEntrypointVLD
      VAProfileH264High               : VAEntrypointVLD

Thank you very much, it works wonders

i have a problem with MPV/vlc and vaapi:

Audio/Video desynchronisation detected! Possible reasons include too slow
hardware, temporary CPU spikes, broken drivers, and broken files. Audio
position will not match to the video (see A-V status field).
i965: Failed to submit batchbuffer: Input/output errorCache: 273s/26MB
Abgebrochen (Speicherabzug geschrieben)
intel-gpu-top: Intel Cantiga (Gen4)

can anybody help me to troubleshot and fix this problem?

edit: it seems vo=vaapi solves my problem, because it avoid buggy opengel.

please add python2 to makedepends=()

alium commented on 2021-06-07 18:57 (UTC)

vo=gpu is the preferred choice in any case and includes VA-API support via hwdec=vaapi or vaapi-copy.

Running mpv --vo=vaapi

@solarkraft: thanks for comment. I checked the conflict between intel-gpu-tools and libva-intel-driver-g45-h264 (which in the past really existed) and conflict between files exist no more, so i removed intel-gpu-tools from conflicts=() array.

intel-gpu-tools and libva-intel-driver-g45-h264 are in conflict :/ How do they conflict? No way around this?
