According to Intel documentation, in order to properly use ffmpeg with the Intel QSV encoder you need to use a specific (and older) kernel version with their patches and other system modifications.
This package provides only the SDK files.

But... do you really need to apply patches to the kernel or is it possible to run ffmpeg QSV using this package?

That's correct. And if you frequently build ffmpeg from a Git package it's better to modify ffmpeg's PKGBUILD directly by adding 'PKG_CONFIG_PATH' before the configure script. I have explained this in the AUR git commit that added the pkgconfig file:

Reason for not placing the pkgconfig file in the default '/usr/lib/pkgconfig' directory? To not conflict with the one provided by 'libmfx-git' AUR package that can coexist with this package.

ffmpeg can use libmfx from 'libmfx-git' AUR package or from this package because both provide a valid 'libmfx.a' file. My other AUR package 'ffmpeg-full-git' defaults to use libmfx from 'libmfx-git' and sets 'instel-media-sdk' package as optinal (and experimental) for providing the '' and '' files that are required by the libmfx dispatcher library. This is made because Intel Media SDK is very tricky for use in Linux, and Intel instructions says that you have apply patches to an older kernel version for it to work properly.

I think to build ffmpeg-full against this package:

Add --enable-libmfx to ffmpeg-full PKGBUILD configure.

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$PKG_CONFIG_PATH:/opt/intel/mediasdk/lib/pkgconfig

Run makepkg.

Thank you for the tip! I have updated the source in PKGBUILD adding a download link.
