Decoding-opencl-Encoding Pipeline in Intel Media SDK

I am working on Decode-OPENCL-Encode pipeline on intel processor. There is a sample code provide by intel for media interop which is attached.

I am integrating the encoder into same.

If we look at the DecodeOneFrame() function below: 

mfxStatus CDecodingPipeline::DecodeOneFrame(int Width, int Height, IDirect3DSurface9 *pDstSurface, IDirect3DDevice9* pd3dDevice)
{
    mfxU16 nOCLSurfIndex=0;

    mfxStatus stsOut = MFX_ERR_NONE;
    if(m_Tasks[m_TaskIndex].m_DecodeSync || m_Tasks[m_TaskIndex].m_OCLSync || m_Tasks[m_TaskIndex].m_EncodeSync)

    {// wait task is finished and copy result texture to back buffer
        mfxStatus   sts = MFX_ERR_NONE;
        mfxFrameSurface1_OCL*   pOutSurface = NULL; // output surface.
        //wait the previous submitted tasks
        if(m_Tasks[m_TaskIndex].m_DecodeSync)
        {
            sts = m_mfxSession.SyncOperation(m_Tasks[m_TaskIndex].m_DecodeSync, MSDK_DEC_WAIT_INTERVAL);

If I use this code the encoder output is corrupted.When I decode the encoder output It seems frames are not displayed in proper order.

I think I am not giving the right surface to encoder as the encoder surface index is independently calculated.

But when I give the OCL output surface to encoder then my OCL also stops working.

Can anyone guide me here?

Mr. Robert Loffe I need your help to understand Intel media sdk integrated with opencl

Hi Manish,

Could you please let me know parameters of your system: processor, Operating system, driver you are using?

Also, did you get the interoperability sample from here: https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/opencl-and-intel-media-sdk ?

Thanks!

One more thing, which Visual Studio version are you using to build the project?

Also, the code snippet that you provided above: is this original Intel code you something that you created?

Can you run Original Intel sample out of the box?

Hi Robert,

Thanks for your reply.

I am using intel Haswell family processor i7 4770 CPU and intel HD 4600 card.

Visual Studio: 2010 version.

I am using the sample code of Decode-OPENCL pipeline from the link you mentioned: https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/opencl-and-intel-media-sdk.

This code works fine. As expected it decodes the stream and applies filter functions as mentioned in .cl file.

Now I have to integrate the code of Encoder in the same framework so that I can create Decoder-OPENCL-ENCODER pipelile using media SDK. SO in above code I have modified the pipeline and added my changes in #ifdef ENCODER switch. 

Now when I add encoder in this pipeline the encoder output is not ok. It seems encoder contains re-oredered frames.

Basically I want to undersand how encoder should be added in this code:

Hi Robert,

Is there any reason I am not being answered for this question in any of the forum available.

Is something wrong here? Can you tell me where should I post this to get some help?

Hi Manish,

Your question is more of an Media SDK question: I contacted Technical Consulting Engineers for Media SDK within our team and they are looking into your question right now. They will update this post once they figure out what is wrong with your code.

Thanks Robert.I will wait for their reply.

Hi Manish, Sorry it took time to get back to you. To see how you can incorporate encode in the pipeline, you can look at sample_multi_transcode which has rotate plugin implemented through openCL instead of Media SDK interoperability. This sample is also part of the sample package you have on your system. Hope that helps. Thanks Surbhi

Hi Surbhi,

I did not find any .cl file in sample_multi_transcode. This framework doesn't use any opencl memory objects created.

Please let me know if I am wrong.

Hi Surbhi, 

You were right Multi transcode uses the opencl plugin. However, this framework is using a opencl_plugin.dll file which contains the code of rotation of image through opencl.

Thanks. I was able to use the framework.

However, when I give the below parameters to the sample_multi_transcode.exe, I got a speed of 15 fps only.

Arguments -->        -i::h264 MediaSDKInterop_video.h264 -o::h264 out.264 -hw -u 7 -angle 180 -opencl

And When I disable opencl and gave below arguments I get speed of apprx. 80 fps.

Arguments -->        -i::h264 MediaSDKInterop_video.h264 -o::h264 out.264 -hw -u 7

Could you please let me know the reason why enabling opencl plugin slows the speed so much at my end ?

I am using i7-4770 CPU @3.4GHz on 64 bit Windows 7. My system contains Intel HD 4600 Graphics Card. Windows 7 contains support till Directx9 only.

Regards,

Manish
