Help with Jellyfin Intel Hardware Acceleration

Please may someone help me get hardware accelerated media encoding and decoding working on my home lab? I would really like to be able to transcode efficiently.

I am seemly unable to get Intel hardware acceleration to work no matter what I do, I have tried multiple distros to yet no avail. Currently I have installed Fedora Server 38, and installed the intel-media-driver package.

error: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR is invalid or not set in the environment.
Trying display: x11
error: can't connect to X server!

In Jellyfin I have set hardware acceleration to Intel QuickSync (QSV), and enabled hardware encoding, while unchecking all the hardware decoding options, I will troubleshoot decoding once I have encoding working.

I have an Intel N6005.

The only error Jellyfin seems to give is FFmpeg exited with code 1.
