Is there any way to use the Quicksync encoder within a WSL2 VM?

And if not are there plans to add this feature in the future?

Hi Jonas,


This is a good request and we are interested on supporting WSL2 for Windows.


The complication of this request is both logistics and implementation, I assume less change on driver itself.


We are actively working on the investigation to make the decision, I will keep you updated.

Hi Jonas


Based on the recent decisions, hardware video accelerator(quicksync) will not be supported by WSL2.


Let me know if you have any business justification on this, I can sent the feedback to dev team for consideration.
