Intel VAAPI howto with Leia v18 nightly based on Ubuntu 18.04 server
I downloaded 16.04 install media three days ago to set the system up. Maybe the problem is that it isn't final and some things are messed up.

I have the legacy package installed and did a dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg-legacy. This gave me the line allowed_users=anybody in Xwrapper.config and the error: (EE) xf86OpenConsole: Cannot open virtual console 7 (Permission denied) in syslog.

After that I checked that my kodi user is in the video group:


Only way to fix that was adding the second line to Xwrapper.config

I'll try again with the custom EDID, I indeed missed creating an additional Xorg.conf. Kernel is 4.4.0 so it should be fine but I admit that I have some reading to about Intel graphics and Linux. I always had Nvidia in the past. Just found the custom xorg.conf for Intel on the Openelec homepage. I guess that's a good start.

Another thing that I'm missing in the VAAPI builds is the delay for the framerate switching. I guess this due the development state and that it will be back at some point.
