In addition to what Andrew reported, when building FFmpeg, you have to
specifically *enable libsvtav1* which has not been done, but could be if
someone tests that and finds it useful.

But what is actually more interesting is that there is still no vaapi_av1
which is what Andrea was trying to get working (just to find out that his
hardware would not support anyway).  There may be some other trick to that
too since it certainly seems to exist as a codec in this file:
