As usually, please update the page.
Hm. I just reread the whole section again.
Martin, did you mean to use intel-media-driver (iHD_drv_video.so)
instead of the libva-intel-hybrid-driver (hybrid_drv_video.so)? Because
everything makes sense with that substitution and the sandbox bug only
To be honest, I have no idea what GPUs even use
libva-intel-hybrid-driver alone. libva-intel-driver claims to support
everything up to Gen 10 GPUs and Gen11+ (Ice Lake, Tiger Lake, etc..) is
handled by the intel-media-driver. And hybrid-driver's only purpose
seems to be a VP9 decoding backend for the libva-intel-driver
Can someone confirm that?
