[mythtv-users] VDPAU vs VAAPI vs OpenGL on mythtv

I confused about what setting to use.

In the recent past, I always set the video drivers on Intel GFX hardware to VAAPI.  Now on 29.1 it fails. Normal, VDPAU High Quality, and OpenGL High Quality all work and I can’t tell if there is any difference.

I’ve started thinking about this because on the Kodi forum there is a lot of talk about how you have to force VAAPI drivers on Intel hardware and not let the Modeset stuff pick out what to use.  The is related to Kodi 18rc. There are a bunch of setting to get the video to be as smooth as it use to be on 17.6.  Back then mythfrontend and Kodi had equal quality on my Core i3 Ivy Bridge NUC.  In making Kodi 18rc work right I got both equal again, but not sure what changed on the mythfrontend side since have not modified any myth settings.
