It works wonders for playing HDTV streams from mythtv. On a somewhat
modern Intel CPU. Without it, HDTV is generally impossible. YMMV.
More modern CPUs might be better, dunno. A lot of HPC is done on
GPUs these days, so they're good for something.

I got lost trying to figure out what "it" is. Is it vaapi? If so, is
it enough simply to have vaapi-tools installed?

"it" = video hardware acceleration.

Yes, if you have Intel Graphics, vaapi-tools should be enough. Then run
vainfo from a konsole, and it'll tell you.
