libva-2.17.0-1 breaks --vo=vaapi in mpv

After a system update, mpv wasn't able to play video with --vo=vaapi:

mpv --hwdec=vaapi --vo=vaapi Nord\ bei\ Nordwest-19-Canasta.mp4

.

I found this thread about vlc crashing. Suggestion here is to downgrade libva to 2.16.0-1.

I gave it a shot, and downgrading brings playback with --vo=vaapi back in mpv.

Does someone has any other clues?

Re: libva-2.17.0-1 breaks --vo=vaapi in mpv

That thread is about a system with a recent amd processor and an older type of nvidia card .
Do you use similar hardware ?


[vo/vaapi] vaPutSurface() failed (unknown libva error)

What was the output of vainfo ?


--vo=vaapi

from man mpv - video output drivers

vaapi
    Intel VA API video output driver with support for hardware decoding. Note that there is absolutely no reason to use this, other than compatibility. This is low quality, and has issues with OSD. We strongly recommend that you use --vo=gpu with --hwdec=vaapi instead.

Why are you using --vo-vaapi ?

No, I made this observation on my poor man's Intel G4560 with Intel HD Graphic 610.

On a rare occasion, I tried to play a file with HDR-encoding. For performance reason, I chose --vo vaapi instead of default --vo gpu. I had the honour to discuss this here.

Re: libva-2.17.0-1 breaks --vo=vaapi in mpv

You have a Kaby Lake GPU, why are you using mesa-amber? It is supported by standard mesa with the iris GL driver and your default libva implementation  should come from intel-media-driver instead of libva-intel-driver.

Re: libva-2.17.0-1 breaks --vo=vaapi in mpv

I may have misunderstood the wiki-page.

mesa-amber is the legacy Mesa package which includes the classic (non-Gallium3D) drivers for Gen 2 hardware and later. This driver has better performance and stability for Gen 7 and older hardware.

I thought Kabby Lake to be Gen7 and so I installed it with the last update of my system.

The same for intel-media-driver versus libva-intel-driver:

HD Graphics series starting from Broadwell (2014) and newer are supported by intel-media-driver.
GMA 4500 (2008) and newer GPUs, including HD Graphics up to Coffee Lake (2017) are supported by libva-intel-driver.

In my case, it seems to be irrelevant which of both to choose.

Re: libva-2.17.0-1 breaks --vo=vaapi in mpv

WTF? Not sure based on what that recommendation is there. Both of these relevant packages/technologies came about when these generations were new precisely because they shipped better HW capabilites that mandated newer implementations than stringing along support in the older APIs and should likely generally be preferred.

I was confused for a sec, the generation nomenclature can be confusing and it is actually different for the GPU as opposed to the CPU, in this context we are talking about GPU generations. Gen 8 is Haswell and Gen 9 is Skylake+ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_Gra … chitecture

Even if they might not directly affect your issue for now (FWIW you might want to reboot/recheck the vainfo output) you are leaving a lot of recent developments on the table your CPU/GPU can actually  benefit from if you stay on the old versions.

O.K, I switched to intel-media-driver and updated the system to be on the safe side.

Unfortunatly, --vo vaapi seems still to be broken.

What about --vo=gpu with the new drivers (performance wise)?
If you think the picture is wrong try some more professional/reasonable test videos to analyze color/luma ramps, linearization, clamping and whatsoever. Maybe start with something like this or that. Download with yt-dlp or similar.

Re: libva-2.17.0-1 breaks --vo=vaapi in mpv

On typical files up to 1080p --vo=gpu seems to work without issues. But I never could say that --vo=vaapi was inferior.

I noticed skippy movements when I started to playback files with HDR-profile. See the link I posted above.
--vo=vaapi gives pale colours compared to --vo=gpu on my setup, but movement were always fluently.

I can't say for now if the intel-media-drivers work better regarding performance/movements, I had to do further testing as suggested.

But anyway, an update shouldn't break functionality, or is the support finally ceased for --vo=vaapi?

And it has already been told that this is most likely caused by bad data interpretation/processing (clamped luma/color range). That's why i pointed to some more serious testing methods to figure that out. The goal should be to get a proper technical output (that might not be possible with the old renderer). After that, one could still change colors to preferred liking.

Not sure if a side effect, your comparison screenshots show color variations in the window decorations as well. This could be a select/deselect variation (during screenshot creation) but this could also be a different global color profile/processing affecting even the desktop. Just an observation, not sure if relevant or correct.

Re: libva-2.17.0-1 breaks --vo=vaapi in mpv

The screenshots give a very good impression of how it turns out on the screen.

I am with you that vo=gpu is to preferred in any way.  But on my hardware --vo=vaapi is a performance saver. If using intel-media-driver instead of libva-intel-driver is a game changer, I have to test, but this is difficult and at least takes more time.

Still, the question remains if --vo=vaapi support is silently dropped (by libva?) If not, where is fault?
Since when using libva-intel-driver instead of intel-media-driver downgrading to libva-2.16 helps to make --vo=vaapi work again, I guess something gone missing in libva?

Re: libva-2.17.0-1 breaks --vo=vaapi in mpv

There's https://github.com/intel/libva/issues/677 which has identified a commit enabling DRI 3 support in the X11 renderer of libva as causing potential issues, maybe try to revert that and check behaviour.

You were previously using libva-intel-driver, right?
Did you try that against the patched libva?

O.K., no, not so far. But I will.

libva-intel-driver shows to me the nearly same behaviour with patched libva:
