I'm working on a (freeware) DirectShow video renderer for HTPC use. I have a couple of questions related to that:
(1) Do any Intel GPUs support hardware decoding of h264 MVC? If so how can I access this functionality? If not, does the Media SDK support software MVC decoding?
(2) How can I switch Intel GPUs into frame packed 3D output mode? And how can I render 3D content? For simplicity's sake, let's just say I want to show a 3D photo on my HDMI 1.4 display in frame packed 1080p24 output mode. How can I do that with Intel GPUs? A small sample that does this would be awesome!
(3) I've been trying very hard for *months* to get access to the Intel CUI SDK. I've tried everything, contacting Intel support, contacting an "Authorized Distributor", writing on forums etc. No chance in hell, it seems. Why does Intel make it so hard to access such an important SDK? FWIW, both ATI/AMD and NVidia have public SDKs available which cover the same functionality as the CUI SDK.
Thank you, Mathias.
