Linux HEVC 10bit Kodi
#16
KabyLake can support HEVC-10 bit on Linux, but not yet in kodi. Mesa / Drm and kodi vaapi changes need to happen - but we can do that our own - nothing is holding us off.
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.

but time and no hw.

I hate to have to return the 1050 if I can avoid it. Seems like it will be hit or miss when/if support will happen. It also doesn't help that I dislike Windows in general and want to try and avoid using it when possible. How is AMD's support currently?

For AMD, intel, even nvidia you can implement it yourself. All opensource, including kodi. No need to return anything. You have it in your own hands.

Last weekend I submitted a patch to Linux kernel. This is the first required step. I would like to get some feedback from the maintainers before going further.

Is this regarding Kaby Lake support only?

Apollo Lake, Kabilake works - all other intel hw has NO hw acceleration support for hevc10 bit.

Along with NVIDIA HW I presume still does not have HW support.

nvidia vdpau is dead on linux they don't develop it anymore - there is no hevc-10 bit API support. There is another big fat proprietary lib that ffmpeg supports for newer nvidia generations. Surface sharing is done with OpenCL ...

Just trying to figure out my options with the GTX 1050, and if I should just wait for implementation or jump to Kaby Lake. I don't mind waiting, but I also don't want to wait 6 months or a year.

As of now I don't know anybody that wanted to implement a fourth hw decoder (it's not even a ffmpeg hwaccel) into kodi. Some ffmpeg guys phillipL and btbn thought loudly about doing that. But that's it - I don't know from any plans inside kodi to support yet another blob, meanwhile the GPU costs > 500 dollars (5 Apollo Lakes).

For the record: https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/HWAccelIntro <- nvidia's new decoding API is called cuvid

Yeah, does not look good for support. I got the GTX 1050 because it was only $120 and I already had a PC to put it in, so it was the cheapest option.
