No HEVC (H.265) encoder VAAPi

HEVC VAAPI H265 Arch beta

Best Answer softworkz , 31 December 2018 - 12:58 AM

@Luke - there's no ffdetect and ffmpeg version is 4.1 which is not supported by Emby

 

@Keltere - if you are flexible, you may try another Linux distribution (just my private opinion, though)

Like the title i can seem to get the hevc encoder to appear on the list.

I use the last version of arch linux (4.19.8-arch1-1-ARCH) with the last beta of emby (3.6.0.81)

I've already installed intel-media-driver but it just won't appear

Emby does not support transcoding to HEVC/H.265 yet, but there is a feature request happening here for it: https://emby.media/c...anscode-in-h265

I did saw it on this thread

https://emby.media/c...ation-settings/

 

No, that is for decoding HEVC/H.265 and not for encoding. Notice the text Preferred Hardware Decoders.

 

Decoding is used to decompress the HEVC/H.265 video so that it can be encoded to H.264 faster. 

 

Mine looks the same as you and anyone else that has hardware support for HEVC/H.265 but can't use it yet for encoding:

Yes, after linking i saw my mistake. Anyway do you know why i can't decide the hardware decoders?

What do you mean you can't decide hardware decoders? Do you not get the same checkboxes like I do in the screenshot?

I mean i can't choose the hardware decoders. If you check my first snapshoot you will see i can choose just the encoder for h264

@Luke - there's no ffdetect and ffmpeg version is 4.1 which is not supported by Emby

 

@Keltere - if you are flexible, you may try another Linux distribution (just my private opinion, though)

Ok, so alucryd hasn't gotten these changes in yet. We should have this resolved on the beta channel soon. Thanks.

Thanks, it's a remote server, i don't have the possibility to change it right now. In future i will migrate to another distribution. Arch is really unreliable even without using AUR. I think i will go with the good old debian.

Sorry if i ask but do you heave any suggestion?

OK regarding betas on arch linux, what you are installing is a package that is being put together by a community member, and as a result it does not have some of our customized components.

 

This week we will start producing our own official beta downloads for arch linux. It won't be in the official AUR repository, just the stable release.

 

Once we make this available I would recommend switching. If you want to continue using what you're using, then you'll need to roll back to ffmpeg 4.0.2, and you'll also need to be aware that these kinds of dependency problems may continue to happen in the future.

 

Thanks !

Thanks, sorry but i didn't understand. I've downgraded the ffmpeg to 4.0.2 but i still can't choose the decoder hardware. Is that related to the missing customized components?

 

PS: Happy new year.
