It seems to be the case that libvdpau-va-gl 0.4.2-1 is reporting only a subset of the decoding capabilities supported by libva-intel-driver 1.8.3-1. Am I correct in this interpretation of the results?

If so, could you provide an outline of what work/code might be necessary to improve libvdpau-va-gl featureset on Kabylake?

VA-API and VDPAU are different, and every codec requires additional translation code. That translation was only implemented for H.264, partially. Partial implementation is still sufficient for most of H.264 video.
