My Windows computer use an 'Intel HD Graphics 2000' video adaptor, which integrated with i3-2100 CPU.It should has H.264 encoding ability(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_Quick_Sync_Video), but I can't use it neither from ffmpeg nor from MediaSDK sample programme.When I use it's H.264 hardware encoder from MediaSDK encoder sample programme, it met error at the method 'Query' of 'MFXVideoENCODE', which returned 'MFX_ERR_UNSUPPORTED' error number.My input arguments of MediaSDK encoder sample programme are like:'h264 -i output_480p.yuv -o output.h264 -w 640 -h 480 -b 10000 -f 30 -u quality -d3d -hw'.If I change the last argument '-hw' to '-sw', everything goes well.
I found the software 'MediaEspresso 7.5' can use the video adaptor's H.264 encoding ability, since when I switch on it's hardware encoding option, the GPU's loading will be high when it converting mp4 files.So the GPU must have H.264 encoding ability.
So what's wrong with ffmpeg's 'h264_qsv' encoder and MediaSDK's encoding sample?
Any advice would be appreciated!Thanks in advance!
Using windows 10? Your HD2000 graphics is discontinued and not supported. All you have is the Microsoft generic graphics driver, which lacks performance and features.
Time to upgrade your old hardware to something that is supported.

@AlHill Thanks for your quick reply!If my driver is too old to open the graphic's feather, why the 'MediaEspresso' can use it's encoding ability?Besides 'MediaEspresso', the Desktop control software 'SunLogin' can use the graphic card's hardware encoding ability as well.
My enviroment is:
版本 Windows 10 专业版
体验 Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.3530.0
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2100 CPU @ 3.10GHz 3.10 GHz
Graphic card driver Version:220.127.116.1159
Sorry to inform you that , the hardware you used is not supported by Intel Media SDK.
Please refer the below link for release notes of Media SDK:
From the page 4 in Release notes, you could find the system requirements.
If you have any further issue, please let us know.
Sorry for the delay.
libVA is for Linux only. libVA is an intel implementation of VAAPI. It is only used in Linux, and it must be combined with graphic driver in the Linux kernel, only libVA library doesn’t work.
Please find the below link for more information:
Thanks for explanations on 'libVA'! So, is there a way that I can use my HD Graphics 2000 card's encoding ability on Windows?Since I found some programme on windows can use it!
Sorry to inform you that, we don’t support this platform as it is very old. It means Intel graphic driver stopped supporting the hardware codec.
Hope we answered your questions. Can we close this thread?
