It's most likely software problem. Please send the logs from Air Video Server HD - Create Archive from Logs to support(at)inmethod.com  

 

Thanks--logs sent to support.

Thanks for the file. I was able to reproduce the problem. It seems to be a bug in QuickSync when generating decoding timestamp for 60fps encode. I should be able to create a workaround for this.

 

hello.  I tried server version 2.2.2 and the problem actually seems worse now.  Any progress in working this problem out?

There were no changes in 2.2.2 regarding to hardware acceleration so I'm not sure why it would get worse. Unfortunately given that this is a bug in quicksync itself, it's not easy to fix. It's quite high on my todo list, just didn't get to it yet.

I have a 2015 Macbook (12" USB-C model) with Intel HD Graphics 5300 and 1536 MB RAM allocated. I'm assuming the graphics chip supports QuickSync since it's a recent version, but the AVHD server options for hardware acceleration are disabled/grayed-out.

Any idea what the issue might be? CPU limitation (i.e. Core-M), maybe something in the software?

Has this been solved? I have the 1.2 MacBook as well, and although it says my Intel Graphics support QuickSync, the options are greyed out.

Hi,

 

x86 beta 2.2.3 crashes very fast using Adavanced Hardware Acceleration , and it consumes a lot of ram memory.

 

It crashes with only one user.

 

Mac mini core i5 4GB RAM , win 7 x64 ultimate.

 

Transcoding to 1080p 10Mb . The original file is a BDremux.

 

Where do a I send u the logs ?? it´s a zip file and y don´t see how to share it with u.

 

Thanks in advance

I don't see any logs uploaded from MacMini. Also, if possible, can you upload the file that makes it crash? Or does it happen with all files? This certainly seems like a memory leak. Is the crash specific to 2.2.3?

Actually, I don't need the logs. This is indeed a problem with the beta, update should be posted very soon.

Thanks !!!

Is there any way to manually edit settings for quicksync hardware decoding/encoding to make sure certain options are used by the decoder/encoder such as deinterlacing or the type of deinterlacing?  Viewing some 1080i ATSC recordings and it seems they aren't being deinterlaced properly.  I've tried turning deinterlace on/off in the client GUI but that doesn't help.  Thanks

Greetings! Been an AirVideo customer since it launched on the original iPad. :D

 

Question - I was looking at this hardware accelerated decoding/encoding option on my desktop and they appear greyed out and unselectable. My PC specs:

 

CPU: 6th generation i7-6700K

GPU: Nvidia GeForce 1080

 

As far as I can tell, I meet the requirements and I did verify that my CPU has the features mentioned in the OP, though it does have a newer generation CPU than what was mentioned in the OP (I assume that's only because the OP was written before the 6th generation CPUs were out). Is there anything special I need to do to enable this feature? Running the latest version if the server. 

 

Thanks for the great product.
