Nvidia Kepler Hardware H.264 Encoder

Post by Avi » Fri Oct 04, 2013 7:26 am

Hello, Stanley.

Are you considering at all allowing for H.264 encoding using the Nvidia Kepler architecture (NVENC <https://developer.nvidia.com/nvidia-video-codec-sdk>) as opposed to its CUDAs? It's supposed to be even faster.

I see you beat me to it; it is already here. However, every setting I try returns an error. Is it still only partially implemented, or is there a setting on my end I have to adjust?

SDK v3.0 was released recently if you have a 600+ card on which to test.

I did find out from elsewhere (Afterburner) that NVIDIA charges the developer to use NVENC, unlike Intel's QS, so unless Stanley starts charging us for the software, I doubt that he will build in that finctionality. Maybe for those who purchase a premium package or donate??

Stanley, can you confirm that you will not be implementing NVENC, please?

As I am not having hardware supporting NVENC, I lacks motivation for it. Neither can I test with the implementation.
When things work together, things work.
