Intel QuickSync (QSV) on Manjaro (for OBS)

Hi there!

Is it possible to use the Intel QuickSync on iGPU such as my I5 5200U?

I want to use my second device (laptop) for a dual streaming setup with OBS NDI. I tried under Windows and it works but I want to avoid Windows if possible. So I just booted into Manjaro live USB and installed OBS Studio. Did install “intel-media-driver”, too and as far as I understand this should enable QSV but in OBS there’s still only software x264 encoding available.

Looking up on the internet I was really surprised not finding more to this topic overall.
