I am trying to use the HEVC hardware accelerated encoder and i found 2 plugins.
When i tried to simply run sample_encode with h264 encoder, the sample encode failed with an error (see attached file 1.txt)
but when i tried to use the hevc_gacc plugin sample_encode ran as expeected (attahced file 2.txt)
I would like to ask what is the difference between the plugins? and when should i use each one of them?
Some details :
OS : Centos 7.2.1511
CPU : Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E3-1275 v5 @ 3.60GHz
GPU : 00:02.0 Display controller : Intel Corporation Device [8086:191d] (rev 06) (from lspci)
To understand the difference between HW and GPU-accelerated encoders, please take a look at this topic: https://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/intel-media-sdk/topic/702371#comment-1892000
About your problem - sample can't find HW plugin, please make sure that plugin is in right folder.
