Kdenlive activate Intel VAAPI hardware acceleration

How can I activate Intel VAAPI acceleration on Kdenlive?


maybe this can help anyone who struggles with activating Intel VAAPI acceleration on Kdenlive, this worked for me.

Im on Manjaro KDE with my Nvidia Optimus Laptop (Intel HD and Nvidia graphic solution together) and only the Nvidia hardware acceleration was working.

I got VAAPI to work with this method.

in /etc/mkinitcpio.conf type i915 between the MODULES="" so it looks like this: MODULES=“i915”. then try to save, enter password and close.
Open Terminal and type

sudo mkinitcpio -P

restart, open Kdenlive and go to the assistant in settings and click the button to check hardware acceleration. It should work now.
