QuickSync encodign output to VC-1

Hello.

Latest MediaSDK supports HW accelerated decoding of MPEG2/H.264/VC-1 and HW accelerated encoding of MPEG2/H.264.

There is also support for encoding of MJPEG, in software.

I think VC-1 is more common than MJPEG and it's already HW accelerated in decoding.

Is there a reason of not offering HW accelerated encoding of VC-1 ?

Are you going to support it in a later release ?

Thanks!

Thanks for your feedback.  As you can imagine, adding new HW accelerated codecs is not easy to do.  While VC-1 encode isn't on any roadmaps that I know of, we're always glad to hear about interest for future planning.

Hi,

As a matter of fact, you have zero competition in this field, AMD and Nvidia can only output H.264 format.

The reason I asked for VC-1 encoding, is because you already support both the other two codecs (H.264, MPEG2) and the third codec is not so popular (MJPEG).

Thanks.
