Hardware AV1 video encoders are coming

There is something interesting finally happening with video encoding and also Media Foundation: IntelĀ® Hybrid AV1 Encoder MFT 11 Attributes: MFT_TRANSFORM_CLSID_Attribute: {62C053CE-5357-4794-8C5A-FBEFFEFFB82D} (Type VT_CLSID) MF_TRANSFORM_FLAGS_Attribute: MFT_ENUM_FLAG_HARDWARE MFT_ENUM_HARDWARE_VENDOR_ID_Attribute: VEN_8086 (Type VT_LPWSTR) MFT_ENUM_HARDWARE_URL_Attribute: AA243E5D-2F73-48c7-97F7-F6FA17651651 (Type VT_LPWSTR) MFT_INPUT_TYPES_Attributes: {3231564E-3961-42AE-BA67-FF47CCC13EED}, MFVideoFormat_NV12 MFT_OUTPUT_TYPES_Attributes: MFVideoFormat_AV1 MFT_CODEC_MERIT_Attribute: 7 (Type VT_UI4) MFT_SUPPORT_DYNAMIC_FORMAT_CHANGE: 1 (Type VT_UI4) MF_TRANSFORM_ASYNC: 1 (Type VT_UI4) Intel UHD graphics coming…

Heterogeneous Media Foundation pipelines

Just a small test here to feature use of multiple GPUs within single Media Foundation pipeline. The initial idea here is pretty simple: quite so many systems are equipped with multiple GPUs, some have “free” onboard Intel GPU idling in presence of regular video card. Some other systems have integrated “iGPU” and discrete “dGPU” seamlessly…
