Intel Iris Graphics and VA-API#

Check currently installed drivers:

$ wajig list-installed | grep intel-media

Install the non-free driver:

sudo apt install intel-media-va-driver-non-free



Mission: Get good OBS recording output on my TUXEDO InfinityBook S 14 - Gen6.

To use VAAPI in OBS follow these steps:

  • File > Settings > Output

  • Output Mode: Advanced

  • Recording

  • Encoder: FFMPEG VAAPI

This of course presumes that a the encoder is present, but on my system it was not. Thus I had to install non free software.
