So I'm currently developing an application for personal use and I'm making use of the Display Encode Mode api from the media framework. It was working fine until I recently upgraded to latest Crimson Driver (Crimson 16.12.2) and now I'm getting screen flickering and graphical artifacts when the app is running. I read somewhere that DEM is no longer supported and I'm using AMD Media SDK v1.1 GA which is old at this point but as far as I know it is the latest version available. Is that the case? is DEM deprecated? The api is working fine except for the artifacts. Any ideas? I have a R9 290 so I'm on VCE 2.0. Any help would be much appreciated.
Edit: Upon further testing the issue seems to be intermitent, sometimes it works and sometimes it starts having those graphical artifacts which leads me to believe it's a bug with this particular driver. I regressed to an earlier version (16.11.5) and it seems to be working just fine again and while that's not ideal, it will have to do for now.
