Have some trouble while using MSDK for server 2014

Have some trouble while using MSDK for server 2014

Hi Jeffrey,

We are appling MSDK to our transcoding program, I've been evaluating MSDK for some time, and I am a little confused by the capability of MSDK on different platform, generally, we are working on Xeon E3-1245v2 (HD4000) & Xeon E3-1245v3 (HD4600), here are some results on Windows 8:

 

1245v2

driver 9.17.10.2792

1245v2

driver  10.18.10.3496

1245v3

driver 9.18.10.3257

1245v3

driver  10.18.10.3621

YV12 --> NV12

 Also, We did some test on Windows Server 2008 with MSDK 2014 for server (eval), even encoding cannot be fully accelerated by HW, which is fully accelerated on Windows 8, here is analyzer info:

The following versions of Media SDK API are supported by platform/driver:

        Version Target  Supported       Dec     Enc
        1.0     HW      No
        1.0     SW      Yes             X       X

What can I do to make VPP & ENC working properly on Windows Server 2008 for Xeon E3-1245v3?

Thanks,

Matt

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

Sorry for the delay in replying.  The version of Windows Server as well as the hardware listed are not supported.

The release notes lists these HW options: 

Intel® Xeon® Processor E3-1285 v3 with Intel HD Graphics P4700 
Intel Xeon Processor E3-1285L v3 with Intel HD Graphics P4600 
Intel Xeon Processor E3-1284L v3 with Intel Iris™ Pro Graphics 5200 
Intel Xeon Processor E3-1285 v2 and E3-1285L v2 with Intel HD Graphics P4000 

And this for supported OS:

Microsoft* Windows Server* 2012, Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2, 64-bit Microsoft Windows* 8

In terms of getting something to work, updating the OS is the easiest to do and the most important.

 

Hi Jeffrey,

Thanks for your reply : ) it's quite clear that new driver can no longer support YV12-->NV12 with VPP, we will have to do something about this.

BTW, I have read about transforming 1080i60 to 1080p60 with MSDK, I just wonder how it's gonna work.

My solution is two VPPs in the same time for TFF & BFF, and then combine the two VPP output frames into one stream. but it will cause lots of overhead. Is there any direct solution in MSDK?

Thanks!

Matt
