Extremely limited vaapi support

I’m using an rx570, which does have vaapi support to dec/enc h264 and others, however after installing manjaro (clean install of kde-minimal, installed today) vainfo shows the following:

Trying display: wayland
Trying display: x11
vainfo: VA-API version: 1.17 (libva 2.17.1)
vainfo: Driver version: Mesa Gallium driver 22.3.5 for AMD Radeon RX 570 Series (polaris10, LLVM 15.0.7, DRM 3.49, 6.2.0-1-MANJARO)
vainfo: Supported profile and entrypoints
      VAProfileMPEG2Simple            : VAEntrypointVLD
      VAProfileMPEG2Main              : VAEntrypointVLD
      VAProfileJPEGBaseline           : VAEntrypointVLD
      VAProfileNone                   : VAEntrypointVideoProc

I do have libva-mesa-driver installed and mesa-vdpau, also vdpau support is extremely limited too. This doesn’t happen on other distros (tested arch and linux mint). Also I’m using linux62 because I’ve seen some people with a similar issue online, saying updating the kernel fixed it for them, this however isn’t the case for me, it happens on linux61 and 62.

that page doesn’t exists, i assume this is similar to how fedora did it just by the name of the link, but where are the non-free codecs at?

Which page doesn’t exist?

The instructions are at https://nonfree.eu/

### install ###

# locally trust the ci key
sudo pacman-key --recv-keys B728DB23B92CB01B && \
  sudo pacman-key --lsign-key B728DB23B92CB01B

## add the repo configuration:
sudo sh -c "curl -s https://nonfree.eu/$(pacman-mirrors -G)/ > /etc/pacman.d/mesa-nonfree.pre.repo.conf"

## include the repo configuration:
sudo sed -i '/^\[core\]/i \Include = /etc/pacman.d/mesa-nonfree.pre.repo.conf\n' /etc/pacman.conf
