The main problem with intel video hw accel on Rocky is that the version that can be packaged in rpmfusion is tight to the version of libva provided by RHEL (that is inherited in Rocky).
So the intel-media-driver package that could be provided in EL8 is probably older than what can be used to support your very recent hardware.
I would recommends to use Rocky 9 instead that has a much more recent version of both libva and intel-media-driver available. But if not enough recent, the way forward for us (at rpmfusion) is probably to enable modular support so we can provide an alternate more recent version of libva/intel-media driver…
Well, After a double check, libva in RHEL 8.8 has been updated and is now newer than the libva in RHEL9.2. So I will make an updated intel-media-driver package on EL8. But again, unlikely to be efficient for very recent hardware…
Thank you so much for looking into this @nchauvet. I found the detailed info super helpful. Unfortunately I can’t run Rocky 9 since I built the workstation to use Autodesk Maya which doesn’t support ver 9 yet. But I may do a dual boot of 8 and 9.

Hello @nchauvet :: Sorry to be a pain but I just tried again on 8.8 and I still don’t see the intel-media-drive. I get the same error message. Is there anything I can do to force update the repo to pickup the update? Thanks in advance!!
