Can't get QSV working on Ubuntu 20.04

Description of problem or question:
Cannot get HandBrake to enable qsv encoders on Ubuntu Server 20.04. I have both the HandBrake and QuickSync plugin flatpaks installed. It's a Kaby Lake processor and this machine is my Plex server. Plex recognizes and uses the QSV ability. I'm guessing it's tied to the "Cannot load libnvidia-encode.so.1" line in the activity log.



Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):
Install both flatpaks, restart server, open HandBrake and don't see qsv encoders in the list of options.



HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):
1.3.3 (x86_64)



Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):
Ubuntu Server 20.04.2 LTS



HandBrake Activity Log ***required*** (see How-to get an activity log)
