Intel VAAPI howto with Leia v18 nightly based on Ubuntu 18.04 server

Or would it actually decode the full 10 bits and then scale it down from 10 to 8 bits? What's the situation on the display side when it comes to 10-bit, is it already commonly supported? And if the display does not support it, then this kind of downscaling needs to happen also in the fully 10-bit capable GPU.

I wonder what's next after 10-bit [email protected] they'll improve something again so people keep buying new TVs. Tongue

Anyhow, there's no HW decoding of 10-bit content scaled down to 8-bit or not for Intel HW and to be honest, I don't see much need this year, probably not next year either. 2017 starts to look like a good time to buy 4k TV and a new HTPC. Smile
