[Solved] Video Codecs not supported

I have installed the nouveau drivers as specified in Hardware Acceleration. Videos run fine in VLC even when intentionally setting VLC to use VDPAU, but the codecs don't appear to be enabled. How do I enable the support for the codecs in vdpauinfo and vainfo?

GPU: Nvidia Geforce 970

Note: Switching to the Nvidia drivers solves this problem, but breaks the project I am working on (needs mesa) Link to error caused

vainfo

vainfo: VA-API version: 1.3 (libva 2.3.0)
vainfo: Driver version: Mesa Gallium driver 18.3.1 for NV124
vainfo: Supported profile and entrypoints
      VAProfileNone                   :	VAEntrypointVideoProc

vdpauinfo

display: :1   screen: 0
API version: 1
Information string: G3DVL VDPAU Driver Shared Library version 1.0

Re: [Solved] Video Codecs not supported

VDPAU development has been almost non-existent since 2015 can you try nvidia proprietary with vaapi ?


Multi-init booting with apg Openrc and systemd coexisting
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

Re: [Solved] Video Codecs not supported

I switched back over to Nvidia drivers and installed VAAPI and it works fine now. I might not have installed those the first time I used the Nvidia drivers.
