Is it necessary to install driver in the host machine to get hardware transcoding working in docker?

  • Get confused when trying to enable hardware transcoding with Intel vaapi in Jellyfin in docker.

    CPU arch: comet lake

    GPU: intel hd630

    OS: OMV 5

    Jellyfin: linuxserver/jellyfin:latest

    In host machine, the /dev/dri directory is empty.

    But in the docker container, there are render and card in /dev/dri.

    According to the above infomation, I guess in the container the driver has already been installed, while in the host machine the driver has not been installed yet.

    My question is, is it necessary to install intel-media-va-driver in the host machine?
