HEVC encoding: error MFX_ERR_UNSUPPORTED

Hi,

I wanted to test HEVC encoding of a simply raw video in NV12 pixel format.
I started with the sample_encode application you provided in the Media SDK, but unfortunately i got following error coming from the Query method of the encoder that checks the parameters.

 

[ERROR], sts=MFX_ERR_UNSUPPORTED(-3), AllocFrames, Query (for encoder) failed at .../pipeline_encode.cpp:966

[ERROR], sts=MFX_ERR_UNSUPPORTED(-3), ResetMFXComponents, AllocFrames failed at .../pipeline_encode.cpp:2073

[ERROR], sts=MFX_ERR_UNSUPPORTED(-3), Init, ResetMFXComponents failed at .../pipeline_encode.cpp:1854

[ERROR], sts=MFX_ERR_UNSUPPORTED(-3), main, pPipeline->Init failed at .../sample_encode.cpp:1745

 

I also enabled the tracer and the log on text file, but personally i couldn't find the problem. Following is the core library log on text file:

It seems that the h265 encoding is not supported, but in the online docs it is written that it is. The strange thing is that if i use sample_decode it works properly, so the problem is related only to the h265 ncoding.

 

The target device is an Intel evaluation bord for Elkhart Lake with Intel Yocto image.

CPU: Intel Atom x6425RE

Intel media sdk: version 21.3.5

Hi,


Thank you for posting on Intel Communities.


We apologized for the delay from our side.

Please can you answer the following questions:

  1. Please can you share the command to used for running the HEVC encoding and the sample input file?
  2. Did you made any changes in code of sample_encode ? If yes please share that file.
  3. Can you share the exact model number/name of the Intel evaluation board that you are using?


Thank you.

Hi,

thanks for your reply.

 

I didn't made any chages to te sample_encode sources.

The evaluation board is the Elkhart lake Customer reference board (Fab C),  intel reference document 607610.

The CPU is Intel Atom x6425RE

 

The command i ran is:

sample_encode  h265 -i video.raw -o video.h265 -nv12 -w 3840 -h 2160

 

The video.raw is made of 400 frames in nv12 pixel format.

Hi,

any updates?

From intel docs the H.265 encoding is supported by Elkhart lake CPU, but in reality the sample_encode does not work with h265.

Sid023,


I was chatting with a colleague. It turns out your command line was not quite right. Please try this:

This command should encode the raw file to h265: sample_encode h265 -i video.raw -o video.h265 -w 3840 -h 2160 -sw

Sid023,

on my side, the following command is working on x6425RE:

sample_encode h265 -i video.raw -o video.h265 -w 3840 -h 2160 -lowpower:on 

The LowPower option is mandatory for HEVC with hw acceleration.
