Dumb question number 57: What type of program is the SDK's H.264 compression? What I mean by this, is as follows. Does it run as a DLL, a service, something else? A link to a PICTURE along with text would greatly help.Please note that I do find a few things in the Intel Media Developer's Guide, that hint to me that it ends up being just a DLL.
- I see on print page 10 (pdf page 18) Figure 4 showing a "Software DLL". This makes me wonder, "what is the Dispatcher" above it? Is it actually code linked into the same exe as the application who's calling the Media SDK API? Or is the Dispatcher something else?
- Elsewhere I notice mention of the Intel Media SDK threading model (print page 21, pdf page 29), and a thread pool on Figure 7 (print page 26, pdf page 34). But these threads could be coming from any kind of [process].
Your simplified answer would be greatly appreciated.
