AMD VCE encoding support?
« on: April 16, 2018, 05:36:12 PM »
I know Avidemux has nvidia hardware encoding support, why not AMD VCE?
Thanks

Also the standard download has XVBA HW decode greyed out.  Does the standard cygwin compile not have AMD libraries?

AFAIK the only working hardware encoders were NVENC on Linux and Windows and VideoToolbox on macOS. This is just about to change with an addition of a working vaEncoder (libva based hw encoder Intel/Linux) thanks to great efforts by Mean.

XVBA hw decoding support was Linux-only, probably never sufficiently working and became completely obsolete with the demise of the fglrx video driver for Radeon graphics cards.

Avidemux mingw cross-builds or any other builds include no AMD libraries and don't link agains any.
