    Add support for hardware video decoding with VAAPI · 3d0e46b4
    Manuel Stoeckl authored
    This commit adds a --hwvideo option to waypipe, which enables
    video encoding of dmabufs and ensures that waypipe will use VAAPI
    to encode video, if available and if formats permit. This mode
    can be faster than libx264, although it typically requires a
    larger bitrate for the same quality level.
    
    This new option is still rather unstable, and crashes with some
    programs. It also has restrictions on buffer sizes; windows with
    fixed sizes divisible by e.g. 32 are preferred.
