  using the GST_VAAPI_ALL_DRIVERS environment variable.

- Update to version 1.16.0:
  + Highlights
  - GStreamer WebRTC stack gained support for data channels for
    peer-to-peer communication based on SCTP, BUNDLE support, as
    well as support for multiple TURN servers.
  - AV1 video codec support for Matroska and QuickTime/MP4
    containers and more configuration options and supported
    input formats for the AOMedia AV1 encoder

    VP8/VP9 decoding, whilst the encoder gained support for
    H.265/HEVC encoding.
  - Many improvements to the Intel Media SDK based
    hardware-accelerated video decoder and encoder plugin (msdk):
    dmabuf import/export for zero-copy integration with other
    components; VP9 decoding; 10-bit HEVC encoding; video
    post-processing (vpp) support including deinterlacing; and
    the video decoder now handles dynamic resolution changes.
  - The ASS/SSA subtitle overlay renderer can now handle multiple
    subtitles that overlap in time and will show them on screen

    recommended build system on all platforms. The Autotools
    build is scheduled to be removed in the next cycle.
  - The GStreamer Rust bindings and Rust plugins module are now
    officially part of upstream GStreamer.
  - The GStreamer Editing Services gained a gesdemux element that
    allows directly playing back serialized edit list with
    playbin or (uri)decodebin
  - Many performance improvements

Version: 1.12.5-bp150.1.3
* Mon May 07 2018
- Add gst-vaapi-add-zero-as-valid-value.patch: libs: encoder: add
  zero as valid value for periodic keyframe. Enabled zero as valid
  value for keyframe-period property (bgo#793829).
* Wed May 02 2018
- Add upstream bug fix patches:
  + gst-vaapi-egl-mark-context-wrapped.patch: libs: egl: utils:
    mark context as wrapped when it is. The returning egl context
    may be null, so we should check the return value (bgo#795391).
  + gst-vaapi-wayland-dont-poll-no-pending-frames.patch: wayland:
    don't poll if there are no pending frames. Otherwise the
    following poll may not return for an arbitrary amount of time.

* Wed Mar 21 2018
- Add gst-vaapi-h264-ensure-num_ref_frames-greater-0.patch: libs:
  decoder: h264: ensure num_ref_frames is greater than 0. Even if
  it is the h264parse fault or bad video file, vaapih264dec should
  set a proper value for
  VAPictureParameterBufferH264.num_ref_frames as the driver might
  use it (bgo#793836).
* Mon Mar 05 2018
- Add gst-vaapi-vaapivideobufferpool-fix-regression.patch:
  vaapivideobufferpool: fix regression. The allocator in the config
  may be not VAAPI (videotestsrc, for example) and it will not have
  a video info configuration (bgo#789476).
* Wed Feb 28 2018
- Modernize spec-file by calling spec-cleaner.
* Thu Feb 22 2018
- Add gst-vaapi-vaapipostproc-set-discont-flag.patch:
  vaapipostproc: set discont flag at vpp deinterlacing. When
  deinterlacing with VPP the discont flag was not forwarded to the
  new created buffer. This patch sets the discont flag if input
  buffer has it.
