Intel updates VAAPI driver for Linux
Thanks to the great work by a bunch of people, Intel committed the VAAPI VC-1 decoder fixes to GitHub for all.
We now have VC-1 decode macroblocking (artifacts) fixed for Linux hosts. . This has been an issue for some 6 years and has been a long time coming. Huge strides have been made over recent months and finally fixed only a few days ago.
Thanks and applause to all.
Thanks to Intel and the team there which committed the changes so quickly.
After reviewing the changes released with libva 2.0.0, it has been determined we must wait until Intel releases libva 2.1, expected 22-Dec-2017, due certain functions/features which were not ready for the 2.0.0 release.
