Thanks for update !! Able to get HW accel in my Dell-1545/Cpu-T9800/gma4500MHD,

Using modesetting intel driver with AccelMethod= "glamor".

VLC can play 1920x1080 youtube videos (cpu usage: 6-15%) - cpu temp (45°-55°C). Chromium can play 720p youtube videos using h264ify with additional flags.

my environment vars :- LIBVA_DRIVER_NAME=i965 VAAPI_MPEG4_ENABLED=true VDPAU_DRIVER=va_gl MESA_LOADER_DRIVER_OVERRIDE=i965

My settings for VLC Select - Tools - Preferences -> Video = OpenGL video output

Select - Tools - Preferences ->-> Input/Codecs -> HW Accel decoding = VA-API decoder via DRM

If using mpv or video clip is the only way to test your driver. its working 100%.!! I was only putting my own findings to help others use VLC player & Chromium to extract maximum benefits of HW Accel using g45 driver & never meant to demean you in any way. I can only thank you for great help in updating the driver for us. BTW I liked your experimental driver more since its lot smoother compare to the regular.

@MaheshWiz and other guys: DON'T use chromium and youtube as standart for h264 testing on g45, please. Use mpv and some movie or clip in h264 instead.

Chrome/chromium have vaapi experimental only and not everytime stable, youtube offer in many cases AV1 codec instead h264 (i tested it with h264ify and derivates and still was AV1)

I was giving feedback for the experimental driver. While the earlier comment was related to the normal g45 driver via Vlc. I was using chromium to view 1080p video using the experimental driver it ran smoothly compare to regular version.. But only drawback was high CPU usage. 6-15% CPU is only achievable VIA VLC player using my settings. I will post screenshot soon.

@MaheshWiz: "cpu keeps hitting 40%-80% usage" <-- that means rather, that GPU is not used for HW decoding. Because before you wrote cpu usage: 6-15% and that should be if GPU HW decoding in use.

can you please put here 'vainfo' output?

@alium: I am currently using your experimental version, works similar but cpu keeps hitting 40%-80% usage. Both version shows intel_gpu_top -> Render/3D busy 60-80%. Does it mean gpu rendering ? colors in vidoes look much better in experimental version, don't know could be my opinion.

alium commented on 2020-08-13 10:17

@MaheshWiz it should be a different implementation of the g45 driver.

@undevdecatos are you really use experimental driver?? can you please share info from 'vaapi'?

undevdecatos commented on 2020-08-13 09:42

Can confirm VLC works with @MahesWizs settings on the 2.4.1-experimental release

MaheshWiz commented on 2020-08-13 07:35

Using the 2.4.1. whats the difference in experimental driver ?

alium commented on 2020-08-13 03:52

@MahesWiz: thanks for report! Are you using a 'normal' driver or have you used an this experimental one?
