QuickSync in headless mode

We want to use QuickSync without any display connected, i.e. in a headless mode, just streaming data in over network, transcoding it and streaming it out over network again. We neither have a display attached to the intel GPU nor do we have a secondary GPU. Does QuickSync support such a scenario ?

Hello,

This scenario should work, we know of several customers having enabled that. The key point is that Intel GPU must be enumerated by DirectX to be usable for hardware acceleration. So you needto activate the Intel GPU in the BIOS and then you can activate enumeration by plugging in a VGA-Dummy.

Regards,
Nina
