H.264 hardware encoding doesn't work on Windows Server 2008

Hi,

I failed to set up H.264 encoder accelerated by Intel hardware, on platform as follows:

CPU: Intel Core i3-2120 (with Intel HD Graphics 2000)

OS:   Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit

After searching and downloading from Intel download center website, none of the following drivers works:

(1) Intel® HD Graphics Driver for Windows Vista* 64 (exe) https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/21414/Intel-HD-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-Vista-64-exe-?product=59133 Version: 15.22.54.64.2622 (Latest) Date: 1/21/2012

(2) Intel® HD Graphics Driver for Windows* 7/8-64-bit https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/24971/Intel-HD-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-7-8-64-bit?product=59133 Version: 15.28.24.64.4229 (Latest) Date: 6/5/2015

The results are the same, either mediasdk_system_analyzer_64 or mediasdk_system_analyzer_32.exe just reports:

    Version    Target    Supported    Dec    Enc
    1.0    HW    No              
    1.0    SW    No              
    1.1    HW    No              
    1.1    SW    No              
    1.3    HW    No              
    1.3    SW    No              
    1.4    HW    No              
    1.4    SW    No              
    1.5    HW    No              
    1.5    SW    No              
    1.6    HW    No              
    1.6    SW    No              
    1.7    HW    No              
    1.7    SW    No              
    1.8    HW    No              
    1.8    SW    No

" - HW target does not work: If you expect it should, then make sure to install latest Intel gfx driver, and that Intel gfx is selected as primary driver"

Hence my conclusion is, given that Intel download center website doesn't provide Graphics Driver for Windows Server 2008 R2, it's unfortunate that similar drivers for Windows 7/Vista just don't fit in Windows Server 2008 R2 as expected. So I don't know where to get proper driver for this platform, and consequently make H.264 hardware encoder working on this.

Our requirement on Windows Server 2008 R2 is mandatory, could you please help on this ASAP? 

thanks

Charles

Hi,

The problem is not related on the Windows Server 2008. You're using  Intel Core i3-2120 (with Intel HD Graphics 2000) - the second generation of Intel processors that's unsupported by Media Server Studio.

Best wishes,

Anna
