Moonlight game streaming on Manjaro
#1
Hi all!

So a makepkg of moonlight-qt works pretty well (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/moonlight-qt/). I adjusted the version to 2.2.0 and got a working package.

It even streams from another machine on my home network, but that's where my success kinda ends. Streaming at 1080p/60fps seems to be just too much given the software-based decoding from ffmpeg. Even though I've run the hardware acceleration patching scripts from the pbp-tools repo (https://github.com/xmixahlx/pbp-tools), the streaming client still can't pick up the available devices:

I've run the pbp-install-libva, pbp-install-libva-utils, pbp-install-libva-v4l2-request, and pbp-install-ffmpeg scripts. Do I need to run on a patched kernel as well? I'm not sure if 5.8.10-2-MANJARO-ARM has the patches or not.

I wasn't expecting vaapi to work yet based on the other topics I've read throughout the forums, but I was hoping either /dev/video1 or /dev/video2 would have reported back with the v4l2 format as available.

Any other suggestions are welcome as well!

So it's a been a while, and I somehow lost my original account, but I've made progress!

I read through all the mainline hwaccel and pbp-tools posts and got some really good info. I ran the pbp-tool scripts for libva, libva-v4l2-request, and ffmpeg. However, the ffmpeg script seems to fail. Despite that, I built the 4.3 version of the kwiboo repo. After pointing VAAPI at the rkvdec device (by running export "LIBVA_DRIVER_NAME=v4l2_request" and "export LIBVA_V4L2_REQUEST_VIDEO_PATH=/dev/video1", vainfo says everything looks good:

Code:
v4l2-ctl --list-devices
rockchip,rk3399-vpu-enc (platform: hantro-vpu):
        /dev/video0
        /dev/video2
        /dev/media1

rockchip-rga (platform:rga):
        /dev/video3

rkvdec (platform:rkvdec):
        /dev/video1
        /dev/media0

USB Camera: USB Camera (usb-fe3c0000.usb-1.2):
        /dev/video4
        /dev/video5
        /dev/media2
(I know the above listing changes with every boot)
Code:
vainfo: VA-API version: 1.9 (libva 2.8.0)
vainfo: Driver version: v4l2-request
vainfo: Supported profile and entrypoints
      VAProfileH264Main               : VAEntrypointVLD
      VAProfileH264High               : VAEntrypointVLD
      VAProfileH264ConstrainedBaseline: VAEntrypointVLD
      VAProfileH264MultiviewHigh      : VAEntrypointVLD
      VAProfileH264StereoHigh         : VAEntrypointVLD

So I attempted a test decode of big buck bunny from a local mp4 file
Code:
ffmpeg -hwaccel vaapi -vaapi_device /dev/video1 -i ./Big_Buck_Bunny_1080_10s_1MB.mp4 -an output.mp4 -loglevel verbose

Can anyone tell me if i still need to update the kernel with pbp-tools? I'm on the latest manjaro release (5.9.6) and assumed all the acceleration patches have been mainlined by now.

If it's not the kernel, is there a version of ffmpeg I should be using?

This has been my Moby Dick for awhile. I've been trying to get a usable hardware moonlight solution off and on since I received my PBP.

I went a different route with moonlight-embedded. It compiled okay, but was unable to get hardware decoding working. I've taken inspiration, and installed moonlight-qt (which is objectively better) and it works identically to yours. I haven't patched/recompiled ffmpeg, the only change from stock is using mesa-git instead of mesa.

I'm not savvy enough to follow the discussion in the hwaccel pbptools threads closely, but I understand that there are some critical bugs to be worked out still (in ffmpeg?).

Software decoding works okay with 720p 60 fps, and even 1080p 30 fps, so it gives me hope that once hardware acceleration kicks in, then it'll be a perfect moonlight streaming device.

Also, I've noticed that while streaming, the keyboard/trackpad associations get messed up somehow. I'm not able to change system settings (volume, brightness, etc) and the trackpad loses its multitouch capability. Not a dealbreaker, but I wonder how the trackpad and function keys are presented in order to figure out a solution.

I'm glad there are other people out there who have the same concerns. I don't have the background for video stuff (which complicated on linux, and even worse on SBCs), but I can offer testing.

Also, I've discovered that moonlight is probably the most over the top, but practical solution to watching netflix on the PBP. It truly is the brute force and ignorance solution.
