AV1 on Ampere

I thought I may as well check here: has anyone been able to verify whether Nvidia's Linux drivers implement support for the AV1 decoders on the RTX 3000 cards? Nvidia's own documentation seems to already rule out AV1 support through VDPAU, for now at least; what I'm not getting a clear answer on is whether it might be implemented through NVDEC instead. I do happen to have a 3070 on pre-order, so I suppose *eventually* I can check it myself if no-one else steps up first. --TheGentleChainsaw (talk) 04:02, 3 November 2020 (UTC)Reply

AV1 on big navi

The only support is here for av1 on amd side is on openmax not in vaapi I think-- (talk) 04:02, 3 November 2020 (UTC)Reply

Add Vulkan Video Decode

Might be a bit early still, but support is being added in Mesa and ffmpeg. —This unsigned comment is by Emersion (talk) 2022-12-28T17:28:22. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Why is there no row for AV1 encoding in the VA-API table?

It seems the API supports AV1 encoding. ( ), so shouldn't a row be added for that? The output of `vainfo` on my computer with an A770 contains the following lines:

    VAProfileAV1Profile0            :	VAEntrypointVLD
    VAProfileAV1Profile0            :	VAEntrypointEncSliceLP

Doesn't it mean that it supports AV1 encoding of VA-API? ArchKing (talk) 21:00, 18 July 2023 (UTC)Reply

Sounds good to me. I have updated the table according to what each driver's documentation says. Thanks, closing -- CodingKoopa (talk) 20:48, 22 July 2023 (UTC)Reply

VA-API AV1 encode for Radeon RX 7000 series

As far what I can find online, it seems that the whole Radeon RX 7000 series of GPUs support AV1 encode and not just the 7900 GPUs, so "Radeon RX 7900 and higher/newer" in the VA-API driver comparison table should be "Radeon RX 7600 and higher/newer" instead.
