More importantly: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Video_Coding_Engine

This encoder is in all AMD GPUs since 2011, hardware H.264 and H.265 (with polaris) video encoding.

The SDK to implement this encoding is free / open: https://github.com/GPUOpen-LibrariesAndSDKs/AMF

(As an example of how easy it is to implement, a hobbyist developer created a streaming plugin for OBS in one day).

....Hello? When will mediacoder support VCE?

Will evaluate AMD APP SDK again.

No no, do NOT use AMD-APP, it's long deprecated.

Use AMF: https://github.com/GPUOpen-LibrariesAndSDKs/AMF

Any GPU from the 7000 series (2011) onwards is compatible, and RX 400/500/Vega GPUs also do H265. AMF is incredibly easy to implement. It's all open source, and examples are included. As I said, a hobby developer was able to add AMD hardware video encoding to OpenBroadcaster in just one day using the framework.

I thought my GPU was used in the past for encoding, just checked and my RX Vega 56 is at 0% while encoding. :|

AMF looks promising. Will spend some time on it.
