I am using following pipeline:
Dvbbasebin ! decodebin name=d ! videoconvert ! vaapiencode_h264 ! mpegtsmux
name=m ! tcpserversink d. ! audoconvert ! audioresample ! avenc_mp2 ! m.

If I use x264enc instead of vaapiencode_h264 the pipeline works great (but
with height cpu-usage).

With 0.5.9 the pipeline hangs between video encoding and muxing without any
error message.
With 0.5.10 I have a problem with make (compiling) but there is already an
open bug at

So thank you for your commitment for July. I have time to wait :-).

Yeah, Ubuntu 14.04 distributes gstreamer-vaapi 0.5.7

I guess you could compile it for gstreamer 1.2 too. But it is better to
a newer version.

Could you file a bug about it? If you could include the error messages would
be great.

0.5.11 is the current development branch (master). AFAIK, it will be
on July.

You can clone the repo and build it yourself, shouldn't be hard, but it can
tricky :)
