WOW, I saw your message exchange in mesa/gitlab. Thank you for the
effort you put into such a complicated matter!

Linux, of course, is carried forward by the interests and skills of
the contributors. Unfortunately, video editing, color management and
other professional areas have never been developed much. Mesa is also
developing very slowly, in an area where proprietary drivers are
advancing at great speed.

I have read that many video editing professionals would prefer Linux
over Windows or macOS because of the greater simplicity and power in
networking (rsync; render farm; lower risk of data loss; etc.). But so
far only Blackmagic and Lightworks have tried to approach Linux,
without too much effort.

PS: in the comments, users point out that at the exact moment when the
author of the video was talking about the lack of hardware encoding in
Kdenlive, the video was showing the 4 hardware enconder options! :-)
