Hello there -

You can find the R3 install guide from our Support page - https://software.intel.com/en-us/intel-media-server-studio-support, and Documentation page - https://software.intel.com/en-us/intel-media-server-studio-support/documentation

Additionally, when you download the Media Server Studio product and untar, you will find multiple compressed files in it - one of them being the SDK. Untar the SDK, and you will find the getting started guide inside. This has all the information you need for install. Let us know if you have more questions.

Can you let us know where you are seeing the documentation reflect MSDK 2014 R2 version? We will surely want to update it to reflect the latest release.

Hi,

I just installed a fresh CentOS 7 on an Intel i7-4770. I followed the short steps described in "Intel Media Server Studio 2015 - Driver, SDK, Samples for Linux Getting Started Guide". I had to disable SecureBoot after rebooting, however.

I did check that an Intel VGA adapter is found.

I can see that i915 is loaded.

$ lsmod | grep 'i915'
i915                  734314  5
i2c_algo_bit           13413  1 i915
drm_kms_helper         52758  1 i915

video                  19267  1 i915

Even after double checking everything, I still cannot get the samples to work.

$ ./sample_decode_drm h264 -i content/test_stream.264 -o out.yuv
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::invalid_argument'
  what():  Loading of VA display was failed

No protocol specified
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::bad_alloc'
  what():  std::bad_alloc

Can you guys help out please? What am I missing?

Cheers,

Have you tried running as root?

Yes, and I get the same behavior.

Right now, I got to the point where MFXQueryVersion returns 1.13, and MFXQueryIMPL returns Implemented Via VAAPI on hardware. I get that on CentOS 7. On Windows, I get implemented Via D3D9. Both machines are identical, except for the OS (CentOS 7 vs. Windows 8.1).

Is there a resolution. We also ran into similar problem as "Loading of VA display was failed" error message. Thanks. Li

Hi Li - Can you let us know what system (platform, OS and MSS version) you are running?

Hi Francois, - After you installed MSS on your system, did you reboot into the new MSS kernel? Can you ensure that with a uname -ar?

you guys should check whether quick sync video is available or not on your CPU.

QuickSync is supported per:

http://ark.intel.com/products/85213/Intel-Core-i5-5300U-Processor-3M-Cache-up-to-2_90-GHz

 

cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep "model name"
model name	: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-5300U CPU @ 2.30GHz
model name	: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-5300U CPU @ 2.30GHz

Sravanthi,

Sorry for the delay of response. We are using Gigabyte Prix Pro running the latest CentOS 7. Here is the system info.

$ uname -ar
Linux localhost.localdomain 3.10.0-123.20.1.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu Jan 29 18:05:33 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Guess for my case, I am able to narrow down the issue now. I can run Media SDK on the local machine from a regular user account. It works in a terminal in the desktop mode. It even works with pure command interface mode (from 'init 3') as well. However, the problem is with remote session from a Windows PC. I use secureCRT program to remotely log in to the Linux machine with shh2. Then, I have to log in as root in order to launch Media SDK program. If I use regular user mode, it has the same old libva error like

    libva error: va_getDriverName() failed with operation failed, driver_name=i965

    terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::invalid_argument'

    what(): Loading of VA display was failed

Is there something unique about the remote login?

Thanks,

Li
