how to encode h265 in lookahead bitrate mode?

when encoding H264 video, the lookahead rate control method can improve the encoding quality . So I want to encode h265 video file in lookahead mode too.
I don't know how to use the LA mode for h265 encoding. I think the la_ext is the implementation for h265 LA mode., so my command line is :
./sample_multi_transcode -i::h265 input.265 -o::h265 out.hevc -b 3000 -w 1920 -h 1080 -u 4 -lad 100 -la_ext

The result is:

Multi Transcoding Sample Version 8.4.27.

libva info: va_getDriverName() returns 0

My CPU is i7-6700HQ. API version is 1.28. Libva version is 1.0
So how to encode h265 in lookahead mode? And whether my CPU and the driver version support the h265 LA mode?

Hi XueLou,

It looks like you were failed on the plugin loading. Are you trying to use external LA or the default LA?

This error line explained:

/home/lpb/git_hub/MediaSDK/samples/sample_multi_transcode/src/sample_multi_transcode.cpp:442
plugin_loader.h :211 [INFO] MFXBaseUSER_UnLoad(session=0x0x56331c850c50), sts=0

This is the actual code:

https://github.com/Intel-Media-SDK/MediaSDK/blob/master/samples/sample_multi_transcode/src/sample_mu...

https://github.com/Intel-Media-SDK/MediaSDK/blob/master/samples/sample_multi_transcode/src/sample_mu...

The document didn't say support HEVC by default but I believe you could pass this error if you use H.264 and without "-la_ext" argument, then try to use HEVC without "-la_ext"

If still not working, please use command "strace ./sample_multi_transcode -i::h265 input.265 -o::h265 out.hevc -b 3000 -w 1920 -h 1080 -u 4 -lad 100 -la_ext" to check why the plugin can not being loaded.
