Emby server + HW tanscoding

I am trying to enable HW transcoding on emby running natively on RPi 4.

But I am always getting Software -> Software.

 

I am trying to stream live TV coming from tvheadend, running on the same RPi.

Any suggestion on what I need to check?

 

Thank you

Hi there, did you follow our hardware acceleration setup guide?

https://support.emby.media/support/solutions/articles/44001160148-hardware-acceleration-overview

That's the thing. The document is not a guide rather a specification list and based on that I should be having HW Transcoding. Since I do not, I guess that I may have not done something.

My understanding is that I should be going for VA API, but how can I enable it?

I would just select Yes for hardware transcoding in emby server transcoding settings.

If you don't think you're getting hardware transcoding, then let's look at an example:

When I select simply "YES" then I get playback as Software - Software

When I select "Advanced" transcoding, there is nothing checked, so I go about and check them all myself, with kind of partially HW transcoding.

Well.... both cases not great. Image quality is ok, but not very sharp.... its a bit smooth. Biggest problem is that in both cases playback freezes for a couple of second every few seconds.

That is SW

That is semi HW
