- I see on print page 10 (pdf page 18) Figure 4 showing a "Software DLL". This makes me wonder, "what is the Dispatcher" above it? Is it actually code linked into the same exe as the application who's calling the Media SDK API? Or is the Dispatcher something else?
- Elsewhere I notice mention of the Intel Media SDK threading model (print page 21, pdf page 29), and a thread pool on Figure 7 (print page 26, pdf page 34). But these threads could be coming from any kind of [process].
Yes, The Media SDK dispatcher is part of the static library linked with your application. This library allows the application to call the appropriate implementation, which resides in the Software DLL. Please see the section 4.3, including Figure 5, for more details information.
The Windows implementation of Media SDK utilize Microsofts graphics acceleration architecture and there is currently a dependency for a usable graphics device which has a requirement that a user be logged in. Microsoft and Intel have been working to allow session 0 usability in the future. (Youre usage model is desired by others as well). Please watch this forum for information about when this capability will be available.
Just answered in other thread here:
but simple answer is "Yes".
One method I"ve used is to run "netplwiz"and uncheck "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer" option. Not sure if this is available for all SKUs of Windows 7 however.
This is a good question to ask Microsoft.
