I am just wondering if Windows7 applications like the WindowsMediaCenter can leverage the benefits of the QuickSync video decoding ?
On the Intel Quick Sync web pages there are just SW packages from Arcsoft, Cyberlink, etc. mentioned that utilize these capabilities, but not the WMC.??
The applications we know can work with Intel Quick Sync Video are located on the following link http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/architecture-and-technology/quick-sync-video/quick-sync-video-general.html which is probably the link you already checked.
I recommend getting in contact with Microsoft to see if Quick Sync Video can be used in any of their applications or not.
We do not have the features that will be included in future versions of the software. You can check the release notes of the application as soon as a new version is being released.
Thank you for your feedback. I will forward the information to the appropriate support group so; they can take it in consideration.
QuickSync is used automatically by WMC and any other DirectShow or MFT player. This is done via the DXVA2 interface the driver exposes.
The actual component used by WMC are:
Video decode - Microsoft DTV-DVD video decoder (ships with windows 7)
Video post process - EVR renderer (Microsoft).
Note that other free decoders can be used:
FFDShow with QuickSync enabled.
LAV Video decoder with QuickSync enabled.
Yes, I know you're the author of QS ffdshow and the appropriate contribution to the LAV suite.
I also have been following the doom9 forums on those two topics for a while.
While that is great work, (Thanks!) for WMC users it doesn't help with live TV, since it is not an alternative there.
Even though WMC is declared dead by MS, it is still the only piece of SW that actually manages to offer live and offline content in a consistant way using only the remote.
I also thought you mentioned some issue with interlaced content but I can't seem to find it anymore. Also, since this corruption is only on the new IB processor I have and not any old one, I thought you might have an idea (or at least know someone from the driver team)...
