Hi Shuangwu,

Application developer should never use internal allocator except for the case of developing an application that supports opaque memory (primary usage in transcoding applications).

If there is a need to access to the opaque memory surfaces then please use the API functions part of "mfxplugin.h", also described in the mediasdkusr-man.pdf.

I hope this helps,
Regards,
Petter
