Intel(R) Media Driver for VAAPI on windows

I would like to disable binary kernels when compile the Intel Media SDK on windows,  which requires cmrt library (igfxcmrt64.so) installed and correctly running on the system to be able to run properly. However, I can only find the media-driver on Linux but not windows.

Any one have the experience or provide me with the driver on windows? Thanks

Hi Yifan,


In windows, we have a runtime library which distributed with Windows graphic driver. You can find the runtime library in the following directory:

~\Program Files\Intel\Media SDK


But I am not sure which file is for cmrt library.

Hi Mark,

Actually I need the driver https://github.com/intel/media-driver in Windows10, but it is for Linux, I don't know if the graphic driver you mentioned contains this driver?

And also I am sure that the graphic driver is installed in my PC(Surface Pro7), my vision is "igfx_win10_100.9030.exe". But I didn't see the folder you told me.

Thanks

Hi Yifan,


https://github.com/intel/media-driver implements VAAPI which is an open source library that only used by Linux.


~\Program Files\Intel\Media SDK has the same content by implementing with Windows API requirements, in my directory, it includes following files:

libmfxhw32.dll, libmfxhw64.dll, mfx_mft_h264ve_32.dll, mfx_mft_h264ve_64.dll, mfx_mft_mjpgvd_32.dll, mfx_mft_mjpgvd_64.dll, mfxplugin32_hw.dll, mfxplugin64_hw.dll.


In the latest update, the files should be move to the following directories:

C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\iigd_dch.inf_amd64_xxxx

C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\msdk.inf_amd64_xxxx

C:\Windows\SysWOW64


I understood your motivation but not sure if you can figure out in Windows case.

Hi Yifan,

 

My apology for delayed response to your request. I have told dev team your request and they are evaluating this. It seems like we don't have this option in Windows vs. Linux. But I want to make sure we understood your use case:

My understanding to your process is, you have an application compiled with Media SDK. But you want to remove the dependency to the driver layer. What would be your use case? Since "media driver" is the only dependency in Linux, you want to know the equivalent component in Windows.
