Description

ffmpeg 4.0 released, includes AMF hardware encoding for Radeon GPUS.
we should add this to tvheadend (like vaapi for intel)
[[https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/8eirp4/ffmpeg_40_released_includes_amf_hardware_encoding/]]

For a cheap hevc encoding and streaming server (Ryzen 3 2200G) or the upcomming ryzen embed boards like udoo bolt, running tvheadend on top, this would be a nice feature.
