Package: ffmpeg
Version: 7:4.0.2-2+b1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?
   I am just following the FFmpeg wiki https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/Hardware/VAAPI, and things are not working as documented.

   * What exactly did you do
   I first tried the simplest one which should "allows the decoder to work standlone to make decoding faster without any additional options", then I tried to feed the vaapi pixfmt to a vaapi encoder, but both are not working (see below)

   * What was the outcome of this action?
   For the first one:
    $ ffmpeg -hwaccel vaapi -i cut.mp4 -c:v libx264 output.mp4 -y
    Input #0, mov,mp4,m4a,3gp,3g2,mj2, from 'cut.mp4':

        handler_name    : VideoHandler
        Stream #0:1(und): Audio: aac (LC) (mp4a / 0x6134706D), 44100 Hz, stereo, fltp, 111 kb/s (default)
        handler_name    : SoundHandler
    Stream mapping:
    Stream #0:0 -> #0:0 (h264 (native) -> h264 (libx264))
    Stream #0:1 -> #0:1 (aac (native) -> aac (native))

   For the second one:
    $ ffmpeg -hwaccel vaapi -hwaccel_output_format vaapi -i cut.mp4 -c:v h264_vaapi output.mp4
    Stream mapping:
    Stream #0:0 -> #0:0 (h264 (native) -> h264 (h264_vaapi))
    Stream #0:1 -> #0:1 (aac (native) -> aac (native))
    Press [q] to stop, [?] for help
    ffmpeg: i965_encoder.c:1692: intel_enc_hw_context_init: Assertion `encoder_context->mfc_context' failed.

   * What outcome did you expect instead?
   They should work...


The input is a short video cut in h264. Hardware decoding looks fine:
    $ ffmpeg -hwaccel vaapi -hwaccel_output_format vaapi -i cut.mp4 -f null -  
    Stream mapping:
    Stream #0:0 -> #0:0 (h264 (native) -> wrapped_avframe (native))
    Stream #0:1 -> #0:1 (aac (native) -> pcm_s16le (native))
    Press [q] to stop, [?] for help
    Output #0, null, to 'pipe:':

Thanks for checking. I guess it's one of the cases where encoding does
not work because of the non-free shaders we had to remove for the
version in main.
