please add python2 to makedepends=()

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

@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?

Hello, has anyone had success with this iGPU and va-api ?

Sadly, vainfo is not happy, and I can't find why on the internet.

$ vainfo
libva error: /usr/lib/dri/ init failed
vaInitialize failed with error code -1 (unknown libva error),exit

Any help (including saying it just doesn't work with this particular GPU or go see in this other place) is appreciated.

for me smplayer with mpv is not working in either normal or experimental version. But at least experimental ones don't hang my gpu.. the only thing is that doesn't do the job but not break all the system as the normal ones.

[ffmpeg/video] h264: Hardware does not offer any usable surface formats. it's my problem that has the output of mpv. Vo vaapi and vaapi with and without copy. It doesn't mind.

@MaheshWiz you have my same old laptop, but mines has t6700 I think.

My advice is to use smplayer with mpv that is a lot better than VLC and has less overhead using vaapi. VLC is a lot worse than mpv for vaapi accelerated video. On the other hand, thanks for the update too. It was needed for so many old computers!
