    Hi,

    first congratulations for this great program.

    I have one Windows server and one Linux client, everything works ok but Linux can’t decode in hardware.

    Linux is Ubuntu.

    $ lsb_release -a
    No LSB modules are available.
    Distributor ID: Ubuntu
    Description:    Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS
    Release:        18.04
    Codename:       bionic

    Anyone has a solution?

    Thanks

    The problems seems to be in libva1, these lines are in the client logs:

    So please try this:

    cd /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/
    sudo ln -s libva.so.2 libva.so
    sudo ln -s libva-drm.so.2 libva-drm.so
    sudo ln -s libva-x11.so.2 libva-x11.so
    #24683

    Thx, that was it.

    I thought ldconfig make always those links.

    Now hardware decoding is working, although my cpu is 135%, a little worse than with software decoding.

    If you want me to make more tests just tell me.

    Thanks a lot
