Is VPP Video Composition on Windows available in any editions for Windows?
This page https://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/topic/516395, mentions "Updates to VPP composition" for IMSDK 'Client', but the 9/28/14 article says it is not available. https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/video-composition-using-intel-media-sdk
Is it available for Windows yet?
Composition is available on Windows today. Please download Media Server Studio R3 release. We also have a sample (sample_vpp) that showcases composition. Let us know if you have more questions.
Thanks for the quick feedback. Both the Linux and Windows 'sample_vpp' have these source code lines:
#if !defined(_WIN32) && !defined(_WIN64)
msdk_printf(MSDK_STRING(" [-composite parameters_file] - composite several input files in one output. The syntax of the parameters file is:\n"));
msdk_printf(MSDK_STRING(" stream=<video file name>\n"));
msdk_printf(MSDK_STRING(" width=<input video width>\n"));
msdk_printf(MSDK_STRING(" height=<input video height>\n"));
Indicating the 'sample_vpp' project has not been updated for Windows compositing.
The readme-vpp.rtf for the Windows 'sample_vpp' does not mention compositing.
The readme-vpp.pdf for the Linux 'sample_vpp' do explain compositing.
I just downloaded the samples today for Windows and Linux here: https://software.intel.com/en-us/intel-media-server-studio-support/code-samples
Even though the samples look out-of-sync/out-of-date, it should be possible to fix and use the 'sample_vpp' project for compositing on Windows?
Composition will work on Windows and Linux. For Windows, composition was already existing and working. For linux, we are supporting this feature from our latest MSS release. Let me know if you were able to get composition working on Windows and Linux.
