HW Acceleration with libreelec

Hi! I wanted to know if I need to have video acceleration enabled for jellyfin?

I have jellyfin on a server using docker but i stream it to my raspberry pi 4 via the jellyfin addon (add-on mode). I believe libreelec uses MMAL acceleration. Should I also turn on acceleration for jellyfin?

I don’t believe it would hurt anything to have it enabled on both, but i don’t have any way to test that with the gear I have available. In a lot of cases Kodi will direct play media and not need any transcoding, in which case having any HW acceleration in the server won’t have any effect on playback. However if you’re transcoding files then having HW acceleration would help reduce load in the server.
