Intel media-driver on Fuchsia


Name: media-driver URL: License: MIT,X11 License File: Upstream Git: Description: The Intel(R) Media Driver for VAAPI is a new VA-API (Video Acceleration API) user mode driver supporting hardware accelerated decoding, encoding, and video post processing for GEN based graphics hardware.



libva and gmmlib are needed to build the media-driver. From Fuchsia root:

mkdir -p third_party/intel git clone third_party/intel/libva git clone third_party/intel/gmmlib git clone third_party/intel/media-driver


Add to fx set:

--with //third_party/intel/media-driver/fuchsia:va-intel

A GN action wraps fuchsia/, an out-of-tree build process based on the native build systems (meson and cmake). The out of tree build emits shared libraries which currently are imported into the GN build. Eventually the shared libraries will be made available in CIPD.


For debug logging:

--args intel_media_driver_debug=true


VA entry points are provided by This library dynamically links to the client driver library,
