Whether use Opencl for Nvidia instead of Intel Media SDK

Whether use Opencl for Nvidia instead of Intel Media SDK

Due to my computer without Intel HD Graphics, I can not install the Intel Media SDK. The Gpu of my computer is Nvidia, so I can install Opencl for Nvidia.And I want to know if I can use the Intel Media SDK and Opencl for Nvidia application together for efficient video decoding and fast post-processing. I hope the man with the rich experience in Intel Media SDK can give me a result.

While you can ues software (CPU) implementation of the Intel Media SDK, hardware-accelerated implementation of the Intel Media SDK requires Intel hardware and drivers.  If your system contains both Intel and NVidia graphics accelerators, you can use both devices for acceleration if you are using Direct3D 11.1 architecture (Windows 8+), however if your want to share both devices in a single usage model you should understand the performance impact of using separate video memory.  Sharing data may require moving that data to and from high performance video memory to general system memory.
