NOTE: This package was created because the presence of nvidia and intel stuff breaks some stuff, at least on my AMD setup. Also packages like cuda are HUGE (1gb+) and unneeded. You can also install this mpv package with the same idea, plus vulkan support over libshaderc.

For me using amdgpu-pro weren't a problem so far, since I just needed this version of ffmpeg to be run on a headless machine. Additionally I'm not interested in AMD AMF anymore, since the progress will probably take quite some time and I want some hardware encoder that actually works - now. It were an ... interesting experience, but I will stick with VAAPI if I can and if I'm able to either make use of cropping or remove black bars that VAAPI seems to add. (compared with x265)

If I'm trying AMF again I will shoot you a message if no one else asked for it. Greets

@JackuellnHdyde Thanks for your investigation. If you notice before me that the support was added, drop a message here to let me know. I could make you a co-maintainer for this package too.

To be honest, I'm not that interested in AMF until I can use it with the open source drivers. SwayWM (Wayland) freezes consistently with amdgpu-pro and I also like to support open source as much as possible.

You're right, after more testing I realized what you already found out yourself. I'm not very familiar with all this stuff and just reading into it currently and expected I just had to init the device like I would do with VAAPI and it took me some time to find out that I didn't used wrong cmd args. It seems the full implementation will happen next year or at least AMD will provide a better API. At least we now know how to add the support when time has come.

Edit: I found some more explanation about why it might or will not work for some of us anyway. You need at least VCE3.4 to make H264_AMF i.e. work, like described here: There's also a reddit thread about this topic for those interested:

@JackuellnHdyde I've now built ffmpeg with amf support, installed all drivers and the dependencies you mentioned. Trying to encode a video with a command like this:

ffmpeg -i video.avi -crf 18 -c:v h264_amf -c:a copy video.mkv

Results in the following error:

[h264_amf @ 0x564d188e5a00] AMF failed to initialise on the given Vulkan device: 1.
Error initializing output stream 0:0 -- Error while opening encoder for output stream #0:0 - maybe incorrect parameters such as bit_rate, rate, width or height
Conversion failed!

Apparently only vulkan initialization is implemented from what I've read around online. I have vulkan-radeon and vulkan-amdgpu-pro installed. Do you have any workaround for this? I would rather not push the updated PKGBUILD until it's deemed working.

@JackuellnHdyde thanks for the heads up. I will try to build it today or tomorrow and see how it goes. I've never used amdgpu-pro so it might get interesting. How can I test that AMF works? Does mpv support it?

@ReekyMarko: Hello, I wanted to ask if it is possible to add support for AMD AMF? I already altered the PKGBUILD and it seems to work with AUR dependencies "amf-amdgpu-pro" and "amf-headers-git". Afaik the amf driver is needed to be able to initialize the device and the amf headers are needed to be able to build ffmpeg with "-enable-amf" flag according to ffmpeg docs. (see:

You might want to remove --enable-omx-rpi. This is for the Raspberry Pi and I had to remove it to get it to build on my PC. Doubt it has much to do with AMD setups.

Anybody else have trouble with tensorflow? I'm getting this message when the ffmpeg build starts:

ERROR: libtensorflow not found

EDIT: I got it to build by adding this to configure:

@morosa You get that error when you do what exactly?
