S3D output on Skylake

Hello,

we are currently using the Media SDK (latest version, i.e. Intel_Media_SDK_2016.msi) for decoding H.264 MVC files and rendering them to a 3D display using igfx_s3dcontrol. The 3D display used is a Philips 278G4. The sofware we developed is running fine (S3D output looks great!) on our first test system, based on Windows 7 and a Core i5-4590T CPU.

However, the software does not work on our second test system, which uses a Core i5-6600 CPU under Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry Pro. The issue observed is, that IGFXS3DControl::GetS3DCaps() returns 0x80004002 (E_NOINTERFACE).

Just to be sure, we checked the graphics driver version (which is up to date, i.e. win64_154014.4352.exe) and tried the MVC decoding provided along with the latest SDK samples (MediaSamples_Windows_2016.msi from February 18th 2016) -- the issue remains. The Philips display is the primary screen (in fact it is the only screen connected) and it is reported as a valid 3D display by Windows: E.g. accessing the desktop resolution dialog, Windows recommends "1920 x 1080 (recommended, 3D)".

Are there any known issues with S3D output on Skylake? Or any addtional requirements regarding the configuration?

Thanks for any advice,

Peter

Hi Peter, 

Its great to hear that you are able to successfully able to get MediaSDK working on Win7. This (igfx_s3dcontrol) API only supports Win 7. For Windows 8 and newer OS versions we recommend using standard APIs available from Microsoft SDK which adds D3D11 support. 

Thanks,

Hi Harsh,

thank you for the reply; this, of course, explains why we didn't get the application to running properly.

It would be a good idea to update the API guide PDF to igfx_s3dcontrol, which clearly says "Microsoft Windows 7 and Microsoft Windows 8 only".

Thanks,

Peter
