Intel VAAPI howto with Leia v18 nightly based on Ubuntu 18.04 server
I installed OE6 Beta 3 from clean on a NUC5CPYH (Braswell N3050). Then I used the update .tar in post #2 in this thread to upgrade to the development version. HEVC encoded videos take the CPU immediately close to 100% - just as they did on OE6 Beta 3, where HW decoding support did not exist. Then my fps starts to fall below the video fps.

Debug log:

I do seem to get a lot of "[drm:valleyview_update_wm] *ERROR* timed out waiting for Punit DDR DVFS request" errors, whatever they mean. Seem to be DRM related, so maybe not directly related to this problem.

I checked the configuration that it should match what has been documented in post #1, with the exception that " Adjust Refreshrate to match video: On" does not exist under Acceleration. I did set "Adjust display refresh rate" under Playback to "On start/stop" though.

The said test videos run well in Windows 8.1 on the same hardware. Any pointers here?

EDIT: Now that I read more carefully, nowhere is actually said that HEVC HW decoding would be supported yet in this build! Am I right?
