Enable hardware acceleration on FreeBSD

Recommended Posts

It's probably something that needs to be included in the ffmpeg build but we're just not sure what that is yet. If you know anyone from the FreeBSD community who is seasoned with ffmpeg and knowledgeable about this, we'd be interested in hiring them to help us get this done.

All I know is I tried it and it doesn't work in TrueNAS which uses FreeBSD. Anyone here seen it work in TrueNAS?

So ffmpeg determines the list of encoders and decoders that Emby uses?

If anyone has ffmpeg working with hardware acceleration in FreeBSD, then that would be the build to use. According to some posters, they have it working. Let's get it done.

Does ffdetect use procfs to detect hardware capabilities? => This might not work on FreeBSD.

I don't think its related to ffmpeg itself but more to ffdetect. The ffmpeg build in the emby-server FreeBSD port is almost identical to the official ffmpeg port. Or how do they interact? The way I see it, ffmpeg just gets stupidly executed by emby-server. The command executed by emby-server is depending on what ffdetect finds for which hardware to use and thus which flags to pass to the ffmpeg command.

PS: I found this:

/dev/dri/card0 is a symlink to ../drm/0 on FreeBSD. When CK2 tries to determine the device type, the path gets resolved, and so it's not card0. Also the subsystem is not set by libudev-devd.

Maybe this is also something you might bump against:

FreeBSD has the option to mount a linsysfs which is pretty similar to Linux. Would this help?

ffdetect uses the same libraries that ffmpeg uses, so generally if doesn't work in one then it won't work in the other. But of course there might be something freebsd-specific at play that we're not aware of yet.

Ok I see, so we are using native function calls from those libraries. I expect libva-utils (https://github.com/intel/libva-utils) to utilize the same or similar functions to achieve the list of render modes. Maybe check the source there? Just a rough idea as vainfo does seem to work on FreeBSD.

Hi Guys,

last time I had looked into this (2-3y), there's didn't seem to be (realistic) support for VAAPI on FreeBSD (without going into extreme tweaking/development), that's why we hadn't spent any more effort in this area.

What you can take as a key indicator is whether libva is working and va-info runs successfully and returns a detected device. I've seen some va-info results, that seems to be promising.

To go forward, I'd need some help from you for getting some logs and answering a few questions:

1. What is IOCAGE?

Unfortunately I'm totally agnostic of all those consumer-grade NAS devices and with FreeBSD it's not much better, so please apologize when I may sound a bit clueless here.
IOCAGE sounds like some virtualization or containerization - what is it exactly?
Are those cages running their own operating system? (if yes - which ones?`)

2. ffdetect

It seems that some of you were able to run ffdetect manually - could you please all try this command and post the results?

ffdetect -hide_banner -show_program_version -loglevel 99 -show_error -show_log 99 vaencdec -print_format json

3. ffmpeg transcoding logs

Some of you have mentioned to be able to successfully run ffmpeg with VAAPI hw acceleration.

Could you please post ffmpeg logs showing that?

(please also add -loglevel debug as the first parameter to the command. No need to keep it running, you can cancel right after the initialization is done and it's running)

4. Plex Transcoding Logs

It has been claimed that hw acceleration is working with Plex. 

Could you please post a transcoding log from Plex which shows hw acceleration working?

 

If you could get all this information for me, this would be awesome!

Thanks a lot,
softworkz

PS: I apologize for the confusing H.264 hw encoder entry. It is an artifact from early days and it was intended for systems where hw detection does not work - it's time to remove that one, I guess.

What you are talking about are Jails. iocage is just a management tool for them. Jails are a security feature of FreeBSD and offer an easy way to enclose applications in a safe chroot environment to protect the resources of the host and other jails. Jails don't run a separate operating system.

I cut the log off at this point. If you need more just tell me.

I ran this inside a jail. To make it work I only had to make the device files (/dev/dri/*) accessible to the jail using devfs rules.

1) IOCAGE is a front-end to setup jails, the FreeBSD native of docker containers. (https://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/jails.html). A jail is basically a userland started by the kernel. Operating system level virtualization. (jails and the host share the same kernel). I use it to containerize services that I let access to from the outside of my network, like Emby, Nextcloud, LibreNMS etc.

2)  Can't help with this one as I haven't been able to get it working

3) Ffmpeg.log

4) Plex Transcoder Statistics (Elona Holmes was trascoding with HW accel)

Thanks a lot for your replies!

I think I found the issue. ffdetect tries to enumerate /sys/bus/pci/devices and that doesn't probably exist on FreeBSD.

Is there an equivalent?

No, but the article mentions /dev/pci

Can you show the contents?

There is no directory /dev/pci. TBH I don't think there is a "directory" alternative to the /sys/bus/pci/devices. On FreeBSD we execute "pciconf -l" to list all our pci devices.

ffdetect is an application, not a shell script and as such it doesn't work by running other cli tools, so we'd have to see how pciconf  does it or find another way. Unfortunately this isn't something that can be done quickly, so it might take a while until we get to it.

A possible "quick solution" might be linsysfs (https://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=linsysfs&sektion=5&manpath=FreeBSD+7.0-RELEASE) but I'm not sure whether it will provide the exact same structure..

I don't see why a binary application wouldn't be able to run other processes to gather informationen.

But alternatively you should be able to get results from /dev/pci using the documented ioctl calls. Then you don't have to run other commands. And I'm pretty sure that's how pciconf works internally.

Edit: Yep, it uses /dev/pci and ioctl calls. See here and here.

Of course it would be possible. Many things are always possible....
Otherwise you are probably right regarding the use of ioctl - unfortunately that will take a while.

Though - there might be a change for a quick happy ending..

Extract the attached file to the root of your file system - then rerun ffdetect.

@Duffyx - In your case you'd need to rename the 'card0' file to 'renderD128'

Ah okay, I see what you're trying to do. Okay here are the results of my tests.

At first after adding the files I received this:

...
"Devices": [
Begin GetVaAdapterInfo
Found 1 device entries
Check device at index 0: /sys/bus/pci/devices/pci0000:00/class
Failed to open device at index 0: /sys/bus/pci/devices/pci0000:00/class
End GetVaAdapterInfo

    ],
    "Log": [
        {
            "Level": 48,
            "Category": 0,
            "Message": "Begin GetVaAdapterInfo"
        },
        {
            "Level": 40,
            "Category": 0,
            "Message": "Found 1 device entries"
        },
        {
            "Level": 56,
            "Category": 0,
            "Message": "Check device at index 0: /sys/bus/pci/devices/pci0000:00/class"
        },
        {
            "Level": 24,
            "Category": 0,
            "Message": "Failed to open device at index 0: /sys/bus/pci/devices/pci0000:00/class"
        },
        {
            "Level": 48,
            "Category": 0,
            "Message": "End GetVaAdapterInfo"
        }
    ]
}

So I moved all files inside 0000/00/01.0 one level down to pci0000:00. Then I got this:

"Devices": [

Okay, we're getting closer. Now the different location of pci.ids in FreeBSD is the issue. After installing the misc/pciids port, the file can be found here: /usr/local/share/pciids/pci.ids. Easily fixed with a symbolic link. So finally:

I have no idea why it can't open /dev/dri/card0, though. It definitely exists and it can't be due to a lack of permissions as I am running this as root.

Damn - so close...

The problem is that it collects the 'cardX' node name, but it only works with the render node. During the past years, it never occurred that there was a need to use a 'cardX' node.

Only idea I have would be to rename the 'card0' file to 'render0' (better not use the typical name with ..128) - and then create a symbolic link between from /dev/dri/card0 to /dev/dri/render0 - but I don't know whether that would even work...

Or do you even have a renderDRI128 node? In that case, you would just need to rename the file to renderDRI128..

Success! Creating a link at /dev/dri/render0 did the trick! 😃

And finally what a beautiful sight in Emby. 😍

BANG! 😎

You can get it even better: When you find out the PCI VendorId and DeviceId values, you can enter them in those text files, an Emby should show the graphics device name as well...

Haha so every time I am reminded again that I only have a weak Intel iGPU? 😁 I definitely need to get something with HEVC support now.

Do you think you will find a way to make it work without these workarounds? I mean they are quite dirty. 😄 But I guess it's fine for the time being.

Well - you can choose any deviceId that makes you more happy 😉

I'm totally overtasked at the moment and I don't have any setup yet for working on and testing this. In the past, FreeBSD just didn't play a role with regards to video hw acceleration.

On the good side, we know now that it's working and what needs to be done, even though it might take a while until I get to that (ideally combined with a number of other issues in the same area).

Today's workaround is somewhat insane, but effectively it doesn't do much more than to feed the device into the actual detection, which means that all other results about supported codecs and their capabilities (profiles, levels, bitrates, resolution, color formats, etc.) are still accurate.

One more thing: Could you perhaps re-tar your modified folder tree and post it here for other users?
(I'll delete mine then)

Thanks
