Intel VAAPI howto with Leia v18 nightly based on Ubuntu 18.04 server
The last days i've been struggling to get hardware encoding to work on my new system.
I would like to transcode a tvheadend (ffmpeg) stream with x264_qsv to my Kodi mediacenter.
(uses mfx_dispatch and intel stack https://01.org/linuxgraphics)

Is it possible to use the custom kernel to support Intel Quick Sync Video (QSV) on my Ubuntu 15.10 Braswell N3700 system ?

My system has a vanilla 4.2 kernel, should i build a 4.4 kernel from source (https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/...rc6.tar.gz) ?
or just:
wget http://fritsch.fruehberger.net/kernel/Br..._amd64.deb
wget http://fritsch.fruehberger.net/kernel/Br..._amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i *4.4.0-rc6-fritsch1*.deb

For the drivers is need as below ?
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:oibaf/gallium-nine
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:commendsarnex/winedri3
sudo apt-get update
apt-get install mesa-vdpau-drivers
apt-get install wine (or should i install wine1.8 ?)
apt-get install gallium-nine xserver-xorg-video-intel mesa-opencl-icd
