Media SDK 2015r6 on i7 Skylake not working

Hi,

I've followed all the steps here: https://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/intel-media-sdk/topic/593838 for Windows 10 and can't get the samples to run. In both cases (FFmpeg & MediaSDK __bin example) it just hangs on the first frame and I have to ^C out.

C:\Users\testuser\Documents\Intel Media Samples 6.0.0.68\_bin\x64>sample_encode.exe h264 -i ..\content\test_stream_176x96.yuv -o dump.mp4 -w 176 -height 96 -b 5000

For CentOS 7.1 I ran the Media SDK installer and built the ./MSS directory new linux kernel and installed it. libdrm is causing a Machine Check during boot but I get to a prompt. even though "i915" is in "lsmod" there is no /dev/dri/card0

help is appreciated. I'd love to start transcoding!!!

Hello Edward,

Currently steps mentioned in forum post (https://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/intel-media-sdk/topic/593838) is for encoding HEVC/H.265 bitstreams only and changing sample encode is not required to encode a H.264/AVC stream as default sample should run fine.

With default sample, mp4 file is not the supported output format. Instead, change and run following command line:

"sample_encode.exe h264 -i ..\content\test_stream_176x96.yuv -o dump.h264 -w 176 -height 96 -b 5000 -hw -d3d11"

Please take a look at "readme-encode.pdf" for output supported formats by sample_encode. Media Server Studio plans on SKL will be officially released in sometime. Stay tuned! 

Thanks,

Hi Edward - I see you had a Cent 7.1 question as well.

If you are installing MSDK on Cent7.1 SKL system - we do not have that support yet on Linux. (The post refers to MSDK install for Windows on SKL only).

If you are installing on the previous platform, and are still seeing the issue on /dev/dri/card0 -> can you go to /dev/dri and see if you can find render nodes instead? Also, are you running your Linux system without a monitor?

(Regarding your question on sample_encode.exe -> the post Surbhi wrote was specific to HEVC. Out of the box sample_encode works for H264 and prior codecs).

I've got the same problem, can't encoder H264 under Win10 HD 530, with drive 10.18.15.4279.

Failed when call SyncOperation return MFX_ERR_DEVICE_FAILED.

This should be the same reason as https://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/intel-media-sdk/topic/544961

Right now it's just no working anymore.

This only happened when I feed the encoder with system memory, and use d3d11 memory is OK.

I'm using Intel Media Samples 6.0.0.68 Sample encode for testing. Should be easy to reproduced.

And When I rollback the drive to 10.18.15.4256 then there is no problem with encode with the system memory.

See the following post about more details regarding system memory and Skylake:  https://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/intel-media-sdk/topic/596385 .  Basically, it doesn't work with the latest driver package from Intel.
