I work for a company that does a lot of H.264 decoding from security cameras that provide H.264 in various profiles. We noticed that there is sometimes significant CPU increase when switching between baseline and main or high profiles. We are currently using IPP 7.0.6 and tried out 8.0.1 but have not been able to see much of a performance improvement. I am wondering if there are any expected performance gains if we were to upgrade to 8.2 or configure the decoder differently? Any help on the matter would be greatly appreciated.
Have you got the chance to check Intel Media SDK product? which include the GPU decoding support as well.
The video decoder sampe code is the legacy code in the IPP 8.2, and it does not much update in the recent release.
