Can we install and Run Intel Media SDK on CentOS 6.3

Jump to solution
Hi Guys, What we have are CentOS 6.3 linux server with Intel Xeon CPU, and hard to update it in short. So can latest Intel Media SDK 2015 installed and enable HW encoder/decoder on this server lower than centOS 7.0?? -Thanks in advance.

Today there are only a few Xeon e3 v3 processors which support HW acceleration. For more information on which processors have gen graphics GPUs you can check ark.intel.com.  For Xeon, look for "Intel(R) HD Graphics P4700" under Processor Graphics.

Media Server Studio is 64 bit only.

CentOS 6.5 has the earliest glibc supported, so even with updating CentOS 6.3's kernel the package will not work in that earlier environment.  However, you are correct that you will need to cover the risk of porting patches to kernel versions different than the release package.

Sorry for an earlier mistake (typing too late at night).  I was thinking s3.  Unfortunately no EC2 instances support Intel processor graphics.  We definitely appreciate that this would be a useful option though.

    BTW, does it support for Amazon's EC2 cloud server?

Which kind of Xeon server?  Gpus are available in some e3s, otherwise there are only a few things which can run in SW (most notably, h265).

Sorry, but no CentOS 6.3 support.  More options are emerging for as early as CentOS 6.5 with the Generic install option, but this means only patches for the 3.14.5 kernel are provided -- porting these patches to a different kernel is up to you.

If your application can get files from EC2 to a local filesystem Media SDK could work on that local copy.  Output bitstreams could also be copied from local to EC2.

Thanks Jeffrey.

We got server with Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5606 @ 2.13GHz / Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2680 v2 @ 2.80GHz (l Linux version 2.6.18), could it support H264 HW decoding & encoding & Vpp ,  Did it support both 32 & 64 bit? 

"More options are emerging for as early as CentOS 6.5 with the Generic install option, but this means only patches for the 3.14.5 kernel are provided -- porting these patches to a different kernel is up to you"   

Did you meanings the latest 2015 media SDK could install & run in CentOS6.3 without official support? And we need to cover the risk to patch into linux kernel?

-thanks again!
