Intel VAAPI howto with Leia v18 nightly based on Ubuntu 18.04 server
And btw. For this testing, please disable "Sync Playback to Display" as other players most likely don't use it ... btw. if we drop / skip that has a sense: audio sync related. So in that regard no drops / skips does not have to mean: all fine (when Sync Playback is disabled). Consider a 3 minute video and every 30 seconds we would go 50 ms out of sync. After 2 minutes we would drop once heavily and then repeating without Sync Playback to display no drop / no skip. While this setting constantly adjusts video / audio.
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.
