In Chromium, WebCodecs "prefer-hardware" and "prefer-software" are interpreted as requirements (though the spec indicates that they should be thought of as a hint). "no-preference" is closer to "use hardware if you can, otherwise fallback to software". 

Looking at MediaCapabilties, [VideoConfiguration](https://www.w3.org/TR/media-capabilities/#videoconfiguration) does not currently include a hardwareAcceleration member.  However, [MediaCapabilitiesInfo](https://www.w3.org/TR/media-capabilities/#media-capabilities-info) (the output) does indicate whether the configuration is supported, smooth or power efficient.
