The Fedora steering committee has concerns about VAAPI:


It appears the concerns are because there is actually an Open Source implementation of HW video decode acceleration for G45... It seems that if there weren't any Open Source VA driver, libVA would have been accepted already.

Ultimately, they decided to allow VDPAU into Fedora, but not VA API:

Sure, it was simpler to allow a lib to proprietary drivers and when there was an Open Source one, they feared about patents and such.
