Correct parameters for MFXVideoENCODE_Query

MFXVideoENCODE_Query continues to return MFX_ERR_UNSUPPORTED in all combinations of parameters.  Platform is Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-7260U CPU @ 2.20GHz.

My vainfo returns the following information:

libva info: VA-API version 1.3.0
libva info: va_getDriverName() returns 0
libva info: User requested driver 'iHD'
libva info: Trying to open /opt/intel/mediasdk/lib64/iHD_drv_video.so
libva info: Found init function __vaDriverInit_1_3
libva info: va_openDriver() returns 0
vainfo: VA-API version: 1.3 (libva 2.3.0)
vainfo: Driver version: Intel iHD driver - 16.9.git_00f9ae_2018-10-01

      VAProfileVP9Profile0            :	VAEntrypointVLD
      VAProfileVP9Profile2            :	VAEntrypointVLD

and my relevant code is as follows

    mfxStatus sts = MFX_ERR_NONE;

    // Initialize the Session
    MFXVideoSession session;
    mfxIMPL impl = MFX_IMPL_AUTO_ANY;
    mfxVersion ver = {{0, 1}};
    sts = session.Init(impl, &ver);

    // Initialize the Encoder
    mfxENC = std::make_unique<MFXVideoENCODE>(session);

    // Set parameters for encoder
    mfxVideoParam mfxEncParams;
    memset(&mfxEncParams, 0, sizeof(mfxEncParams));

    mfxEncParams.IOPattern = MFX_IOPATTERN_IN_SYSTEM_MEMORY | MFX_IOPATTERN_OUT_SYSTEM_MEMORY;
    mfxEncParams.mfx.CodecId = MFX_CODEC_AVC;
    mfxEncParams.mfx.CodecLevel = MFX_LEVEL_AVC_1;
    mfxEncParams.mfx.TargetKbps = kbitrate;
    mfxEncParams.mfx.EncodedOrder = true;

    mfxEncParams.mfx.FrameInfo.FourCC = MFX_FOURCC_NV12;
    mfxEncParams.mfx.FrameInfo.Width = f_width;
    mfxEncParams.mfx.FrameInfo.Height = f_height;
    mfxEncParams.mfx.FrameInfo.CropX = 0;
    mfxEncParams.mfx.FrameInfo.CropY = 0;
    mfxEncParams.mfx.FrameInfo.CropW = f_width;
    mfxEncParams.mfx.FrameInfo.CropH = f_height;
    mfxEncParams.mfx.FrameInfo.FrameRateExtN = framerate;
    mfxEncParams.mfx.FrameInfo.FrameRateExtD = 1;
    mfxEncParams.mfx.FrameInfo.ChromaFormat = MFX_CHROMAFORMAT_YUV420;

    // Query the parameters to verify
    sts = mfxENC->Query(&mfxEncParams, &mfxEncParams);
    sts = mfxENC->Init(&mfxEncParams);

Are my parameters incorrect, and if so how can I verify the correct parameters for the platform? kbitrate, f_width, f_height, and framerate are external parameters that have been tested at values 5000, 640, 480, 25 respectively.

Hi Mark,

It looks like your API usage is not in the correct sequence, actually mfxENC->Init() and mfxENC->Query() is reversed. You should call Init() first.

But in SDK Developer Reference was written about MFXVideoENCODE_Query: "The application can call this function before or after it initializes the encoder"

Hi Anatoly,

Sorry for the late response, I think there should be some conflict among the parameters, you can refer to the following file to check how Media SDK check the parameters:

https://github.com/Intel-Media-SDK/MediaSDK/blob/master/_studio/mfx_lib/shared/src/mfx_h264_enc_comm...

This file also shows some information about the parameter unit we checked.

The other way to find the conflict is to start from a set of parameters which works, so you can this set from the sample_encode when it works normal. Then you change it toward your expected values, you will find which one causes the problem.
