vaapi fails to initialize under wayland

Description

When starting playback on Fedora 26 on VAAPI capable hardware, the vaapi libraries fail to initialize properly, and we fall back to software decode.

Switching back to Xorg, rather than Wayland and vaapi works correctly again.

Under Wayland:

libva info: VA-API version 0.40.0
libva info: va_getDriverName() returns -1
libva error: va_getDriverName() failed with unknown libva error,driver_name=(null)
...

Please check if the patch in #13311 fixes the problem. Note that there is now a place in video setup to enter the VAAPI device path.

Resolution: Fixed
Status: acceptedclosed

This is fixed in ff7a1478f4406d318bb3c01da3f25a26425847d3. Use vaapi2 instead of vaapi and fill in the device under mythfrontend -> Setup -> Video -> Playback -> General -> Decoder Device for VAAPI2
