Are there some more installation steps necessary to get Handbrake using QSV on Chrome OS?

Not sure what's preventing it from loading, but it's silently failing initialization somewhere.

When successful initialization happens you would see this in the log:

Code: Select all

[15:57:34] hb_display_init: attempting VA driver 'iHD'
libva info: VA-API version 1.5.0
libva info: va_getDriverName() returns 0
libva info: User requested driver 'iHD'
libva info: Trying to open /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri/iHD_drv_video.so
libva info: Trying to open /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri/intel-vaapi-driver/iHD_drv_video.so
libva info: Found init function __vaDriverInit_1_5
libva info: va_openDriver() returns 0
My best guess at this point is that MFXInit() function is failing since this would gate the code that displays the above messages.

Thanks and sorry John,
I should have looked into the manual first. ATM the Linux feature on Chrome OS doesn't support this.
From Google:
Check what’s not supported yet

Cameras are not yet supported.
Android devices are supported over USB, but other devices are not yet supported.
Android Emulators are not yet supported.
Hardware acceleration is not yet supported, including GPU and video decode.
ChromeVox is supported for the default Terminal app, but not yet for other Linux apps.
