Possibly a dumb question... I have developed an H264 decoder using the Media SDK. Now I'm trying to run it on other machines such as an ASUS P8P67 motherboard with i5 running Window 10. This machine has no onboard graphics - just an add-in Radeon board. I had hoped (and expected) to use the intel GPU to accelerate the H264 decoding. But the intel GPU does not show up. I don't see anything in BIOS about it and the intel graphics drivers wont install ('does not meet minimum requirements'). Is there any way to leverage the intel GPU on a machine without intel graphics? Or did I just waste a month of my time leaning this toolkit?
Since you do not have an Intel GPU your platform if wouldn;t be possible to use the intel GPU advantages. however, you can still use the CPU to decode by configuring SW only.
Based on your board board spec https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P8P67/specifications/
it has P67 chipset that doesn't support integrated graphics.
OK thanks - that's what I was beginning to suspect. I had originally thought (apparently incorrectly) that the GPU was actually integrated into the i5 chip itself and might therefore be available even if the motherboard didn't actually use it. Or perhaps its in there but unusable without the help of the external chipset. But anyway it looks like the intel media SDK is far less useful than I had hoped....
Chipset makes big difference in terms of graphics support especially for such old systems. So far you still can use SW implementation of Media SDK decoding as Stav suggested.
