Video Acceleration API (VA API) is a library and API specification
which enables and provides access to graphics hardware (GPU)
acceleration for video processing on Linux and UNIX based operating
systems.  Accelerated processing includes video decoding, video
encoding, subpicture blending and rendering.  The specification was
originally designed by Intel for its GMA (Graphics Media Accelerator)
series of GPU hardware, the API is however not limited to GPUs or
Intel specific hardware, as other hardware and manufacturers can
also freely use this API for hardware accelerated video decoding.
