 ffmpeg -hwaccel vaapi -vaapi_device /dev/dri/renderD128 -v verbose -f
 rawvideo -s:v 1920x1080 -i ./1080p_blue_sky.yuv -vf format=nv12,hwupload
 -c:v hevc_vaapi -g 12 -bf 0 -b:v 4M -quality 4 -y

 My input is 4M bitrate, but the output is bitrate=3480.3kbits/s, which is
 out of the 10% range

 some log of output:
