Shotcut do detect vaapi and set the checkmarks when tested. But does break for every export with this.

Why do i want to use vaapi? Any HD export on my 8C16T machine take hours like back in the 90s while the CPU cores leisure around with below 50%.

I do not know how to fix this in our binary builds because VAAPI is very sensitive to the versions between its 3 layers. It seems the Flatpak build is much better at providing VAAPI compatibility.

Yes it’s a Fedora fail, just turned the big machine over to Linuxmint 20 and here everything works OOTB. Seems to be better to use some older packages but to get functionality for it.
