New Detail

2022Q3:

FFmpeg and Gstreamer added new RPL-S platform support

FFmpeg: 

  • ffmpeg-vaapi added av1 encode support
  • ffmpeg-vaapi can select related hw codec to do decode automatically, a example cmd line for decode "ffmpeg -hwccel vaapi -i av1.mp4 -f null -"
  • ffmpeg-qsv h265 encode added adaptive_i/b support
  • ffmpeg-qsv vpp scaling add model select through oneVPL which supports EU, VDBOX or VEBOX. User can use option of "scale_mode" to select which hardware model
  • ffmpeg dnn: OpenVINO full GPU detect and classify support
  • ffmpeg dnn: enabled libtorch as one of FFmpeg DNN backend

​Gstreamer:

  • gst-msdk improve memory abstraction for encoder and vpp, which enables the direct share of VA surface between gst-msdk enc/vpp and gst-va element
  • gst-msdk fix msdkav1enc's failure with some resolutions

 

2022Q2:

FFmpeg:

  • ffmpeg-vaapi added VDSFC Scaling support
  • ffmpeg-vaapi added max_frame_size for encode
  • ffmpeg-vaapi added GPB frame support for encode
  • ffmpeg-qsv added adaptive_i and adaptive_b support for hevc encode
  • ffmpeg-qsv added min/max qp control for I/P/B frames
  • ffmpeg-qsv added ROI support for h264/h265 encode
  • ffmpeg-qsv supported yuyv422/y210 format direct input mode for encode
  • ffmpeg added gaussian filter through Vulkan
  • ffmpeg added stitching filter through libxcam library
  • ffmpeg video analysis added BasicVSR super resolution support
  • ffmpeg video analysis added FRVSR super resolution

Gstreamer:

  • gst-msdk added av1 encode support;
  • gst-msdk added VUYA interleaved color format in dmabuf mode
  • gst-msdk added intra refresh for avc/hevc encode

 

2022Q1:

FFmpeg: 

  • ffmpeg_qsv added av1 encode support
  • supported av1 decode frame split bsf feature in ffmpeg core
  • fixed a hevc 10bit run2run issue on some legacy platforms for ffmpeg_qsv
  • added a powerful and customizable gblur Vulkan filter for ffmpeg

Gstreamer:  

  • gst-msdk avc/hevc decoder added SFC support for csc and scaling
  • gst-msdk encoders enabled VA surface input path
  • gst-vaapi improved av1 parse and fixed some av1 decode failed cases (such as film grain)
  • fixed some h264 decode failed cases for gst-msdk, which needs check for width and height in mfxVideoParam

2021Q4:

FFmpeg new features: 

  • buffer sharing between media and vulkan  
  • support 0YUV, YUY2, Y210, Y410, P012, Y212, Y412 on Windows when using d3d11 device 
  • hevc main10 sp encoding

Gstreamer new features:  

  • Gstmsdk vpp supports csc to 12bit format 
  • Gstmsdk hevc encoder supports to encode HDR SEIs
