This gist will generate an Intel QSV-enabled FFmpeg build using the open source Intel Media SDK. Testbed used: Ubuntu 18.04LTS. A fallback is also provided for the intel vaapi driver where needed.

Build FFmpeg with Intel's QSV enablement on an Intel-based validation test-bed:

Build platform: Ubuntu 18.04LTS

Ensure the platform is up to date:

sudo apt update && sudo apt -y upgrade && sudo apt -y dist-upgrade

Install baseline dependencies first (inclusive of OpenCL headers+)
