Hi, everyone! Hope you're all having a nice life! :)
Just bumped into this https://www.phoronix.com/news/Fedora-Disable-Bad-VA-API while checking my feed, and thought I'd share here.
An excerpt:
For Fedora Linux users currently making use of Mesa's VA-API support with the open-source AMD graphics driver or similar and using it to speed-up H.264, H.265, or VC1 decoding, you may soon be out of luck and will have to fall-back to either using CPU-based decoding or be relying on an unofficial/third-party Mesa build.
