vp8/9 sample decode

hi

OS: Ubuntu 12.04

       MediaSamples_Linux_6.0.16043175.175

       MediaServerStudioEssentials2015R6

Platform:  i5-4570S

I  got following result

[release] $ ./sample_decode_x11 vp8 -sw -i src_4Mbps.vp8 -p bffc518cde134df98a96f4cf816c0fac

Return on error: error code -3, /home/dspuser/Downloads/IntellMediaSDK/MediaSamples_Linux_6.0.16043175.175/samples/sample_common/src/sample_utils.cpp   613

Return on error: error code -3, /home/dspuser/Downloads/IntellMediaSDK/MediaSamples_Linux_6.0.16043175.175/samples/sample_decode/src/pipeline_decode.cpp        139

Return on error: error code 1,  /home/dspuser/Downloads/IntellMediaSDK/MediaSamples_Linux_6.0.16043175.175/samples/sample_decode/src/sample_decode.cpp  501

 

After checking the above line number, I got.

    // check header
    MSDK_CHECK_NOT_EQUAL(MFX_MAKEFOURCC('D','K','I','F'), m_hdr.dkif, MFX_ERR_UNSUPPORTED);
    MSDK_CHECK_NOT_EQUAL(MFX_MAKEFOURCC('V','P','8','0'), m_hdr.codec_FourCC, MFX_ERR_UNSUPPORTED);

Then I referred https://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/intel-media-sdk/topic/605925 and have question.

Q1. does VP8/9 have software supported ??

Q2, If yes, any user guide for enabling with sample was provided??

Thanks.

Hi there, 

There is no VP8 and VP9 sw implementation support available through Media SDK. Since VP8 and VP9 codec are opensource, so one can really use the sw implementation there. Vp8 decode hw acceleration is available on 5th generation to use. 

Thanks,
Surbhi

Hi Surbhi.

I followed SDK API Reference Manual for VP8 (API Version 1.12) for enabling VP8 decoder in the test application.

Codec ID is set to MFX_CODEC_VP8 and DataFlag is set to MFX_BITSTREAM_COMPLETE_FRAME. Successfully compiled.

A complete frame is read into the input buffer but DecodeHeader function returns an error, which reads

Unsupported feature/library load error. src/simple_decode_vmem.cpp 104

Any ideas, how to address overcome this error?

My usage is ./simple_decode_vmem -auto ~/Desktop/GPU/TestStreams/DV.ivf

My setup is: SDK API v 1.16, Core i7-5600U CPU @2.60GHZ, 4 cores, Broadwell (5th generation as suggested above), Turbo Disabled, HD graphics 5500, centOS 7.1

HI Kishore, 

Media SDK tutorials are not configured for VP8 codec. In Media Server Studio, VP8 decode is implemented as a plugin and sample_decode is configured with plugin model for VP8 and HEVC. Can you try sample decode to make sure VP8 decode works on your system?

cmd : ./sample_decode_drm vp8 -i ../content/test_stream_vp8.ivf -p f622394d8d87452f878c51f2fc9b4131
f622394d8d87452f878c51f2fc9b4131 - GUID plugin for VP8 codec, defined in plugins.cfg present at /opt/intel/mediasdk/plugin directory

If this works, then you can either change the tutorial to add plugin support and set the data flag or make changes in sample_decode to add the full frame and set dataflag. 

Hope this helps. 

Thanks,
Surbhi

Hi Surbhi,

Thank you for the quick reply. Sample decode gave me following errors. What could have gone wrong?

Hi Kishore, 

Your system definitely supports VP8 codec, plugin was successfully able to load.  Can you check if other codec like h264 works fine for you, decode a h264 stream present in the content folder to make sure Media Server Studio has been correctly installed. 
Are you using Media Server Studio version 2015 R6? Are you using pre-compiled binaries?

Hi Surbhi,

We have validated MPEG2/H264 decoder/encoder without any issues.

Yes, we are using MSS 2015 R6 and the precompiled binaries that came along with. We are using the Decoding Sample Version 6.0.16043175.175.

 

The precompiled decode binary does not seem to support vp8, even as plug-in. Here is the codec list it displays

Supported codecs (<codecid>):
   <codecid>=h264|mpeg2|vc1|mvc|jpeg - built-in Media SDK codecs
   <codecid>=h265|capture            - in-box Media SDK plugins (may require separate downloading and installation)

Am I using the right version of pre-compiled binary?

Best Regards,

Kishor

Hi Surbhi,

Any updates on this?

Is there a document which explains sample_decode to be configured with plugin model for VP8?

 

Thank you.

Best Regards, Kishor

Hi Kishore, 

There is a VP8 manual available online to get more details - https://software.intel.com/sites/default/files/mediasdkvp8-man.pdf. I know there is no mention of VP8 codec support in sample_decode but it does support, it is something we missed to mention. I don't think pre-compiled binaries should have an issue, but you can clean and build the binaries again. check build.pl to clean and recompile the binaries. Another thing which can be helpful is to capture tracer logs, present at installed directory. The tracer logs capture the media sdk calls which can help to debug. Can you also send the o/p of cmd "uname -r" and check the vp8 decode plugin in /opt/intel/mediasdk/plugins/plugin.cfg?

Thanks,
Surbhi

The manual is not discussing preparing plug-in based applications. A sample application demonstrating  the plug-in architecture would be beneficial, considering we have to approach our applications in similar fashion.

It is available. The content as follows.

Where can i find this build.pl? Is the source of the binaries, which came with SDK (sample_decode_x11) available?

Kishore, 

I hope you have downloaded the samples package separately on your system, if not the please download it from here - https://software.intel.com/en-us/intel-media-server-studio-support/code-samples 
After the download, go to installed directory>samples and there is a build.pl file to clean and rebuild the samples. Use drm samples, which are the preferred samples to use and send the tracer logs in case of failure.
