Hello,

I wanted to know is there any function call or parameter provided by Intel Media SDK in h264 Encoding which can tell me :

1- NAL count in each h264 encoded frame?

2- Total number of threads involve in Encoding?

Hi Mohammad, for NAL count you mean NAL unit? There is a plan to get NAL unit info report in nearest Media SDK release.

What is purpose for getting amount of threads?

Hello Artem,

1- By NAL count i mean total number of NALU in a encoded h264 frame.

2- For doing RnD related to cpu usage, i was wondering if intel provides something which can allow to set number of threads to run in encoding.

There are no any option now to set number of internal threads for encoding, number of internal threads allocated - always equal to number of available logical cores, number of threads used - will vary from 1 to number of threads allocated depending on different situations.
