A VA-API output device plugin for VDR.

    o Based on softhddevice by Johns: http://projects.vdr-developer.org/projects/plg-softhddevice
    o Video decoder CPU / VAAPI
    o Video output VAAPI
    o Audio FFMpeg / Alsa / Analog / Digital
    o HDMI/SPDIF pass-through
    o VDR ScaleVideo API
    o Autocrop

    o Suspend / Detach
    o Letterbox, Stretch and Center cut-out video display modes

Install:
--------

	git clone https://github.com/pesintta/vdr-plugin-vaapidevice.git
	cd vdr-plugin-vaapidevice
	make
	make install

	You can edit Makefile to enable/disable Alsa support.
	The default is to autodetect as much as possible.

Issues/bugs:
------------

	If any issues or bugs arise, please, open an Github issue here:
	https://github.com/pesintta/vdr-plugin-vaapidevice/issues

	Remember to include your system report into the Github issue by
	the included script:

	export DISPLAY=:0.0
	./generate_system_report.sh

Setup:	environment
------
	Following is supported:

	DISPLAY=:0.0
		x11 display name

	Only if alsa is configured:

	ALSA_DEVICE=default
		alsa PCM device name
	ALSA_PASSTHROUGH_DEVICE=
		alsa pass-though (AC-3,E-AC-3,DTS,...) device name
	ALSA_MIXER=default
		alsa control device name
	ALSA_MIXER_CHANNEL=PCM
		alsa control channel name

	0 = none, 1 = PCM, 2 = MPA, 4 = AC-3, 8 = EAC-3, -X disable

	for PCM/AC-3/EAC-3 the pass-through device is used and the audio
	stream is passed undecoded to the output device.
	z.b. 12 = AC-3+EAC-3, 13 = PCM+AC-3+EAC-3
	note: MPA/DTS/TrueHD/... aren't supported yet
	negative values disable passthrough

	vaapidevice.AudioDownmix = 0
	0 = none, 1 = downmix
	Use ffmpeg/libav downmix of AC-3/EAC-3 audio to stereo.

Commandline:
------------

	Use vdr -h to see the command line arguments supported by the plugin.
