Depends what you mean by "video acceleration".

According to the specs at
the RPi4 definitely has hardware video decoding: "H.265 (4kp60 decode),
H264 (1080p60 decode, 1080p30 encode)"

>From the FAQ (https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/faqs/#pi-video):

"On the Raspberry Pi 4, the extra hardware CODEC support for MPEG-2 and
VC-1 is not available: because the Raspberry Pi 4's processors are
powerful enough to decode these in software, no CODEC licence is
necessary. In addition, the Raspberry Pi 4 also has hardware support for
decoding H265/HEVC."
