The latest release of kodi 19.1-5 is missing the VAAPI video acceleration in the player video settings and during playback of live TV only software decoding is used (checked with O shortcut key). In kodi-matrix-git video acceleration is working fine.

Additional info:
* Package kodi 19.1-5
* GNOME 40.3.0 with Wayland enabled
* libva 2.12.0 on libva-mesa-driver 21.1.5-1

Steps to reproduce:
Install new unified kodi package and go to Settings -> Player -> Video [No VAAPI entry found].
Play a video and check for video acceleration with O shortcut key.
This task depends upon
