Is there a way to access the UVD through the Stream SDK? If not, is there any Open Source way of accessing it?
Negative. But I can imagine how terrific it would be if it were 🙂
Yes, it would be great!
Neuron2, from doom9 forum, is trying to implement hardware decoding into its DGIndex frame serving AVISynth plugin. VP2 support is in early alpha stage, and it keeps CPU usage to a minimum. UVD support could help the AMD/ATi users a lot.
I see that Catalyst 9.5 Hotfix brings us "Fast UVD Decode". Does this mean you can access UVD through the Stream SDK?
So, what does "Fast UVD Decode" do? Is it something new in the API?
