LAV Filters Add Intel QuickSync Support
Until recently, proper support for hardware accelerated decoding on Intel GPUs has been missing from the Free Open Source Software (FOSS) community. Eric Gur added the feature to ffdshow a few months ago, but for those who have transitioned to nevcairiel’s LAV Filters because of the greater stability offered by his codecs that didn’t offer a real solution to the problem, until now.
I haven’t had a chance to test it out, but given the success I’ve had with Eric’s ffdshow implementation (reused here) and the LAV Filters in general, I don’t expect too many showstoppers. Kudos to both! We thank you 🙂
