How do I get h264 to offload to GPU? (ATi 3850) - Page 2

post #11 of 12
dude coreavc is a SOFTWARE decoder, and it is the most efficient SOFTWARE DECODER but it still uses the cpu.

the point of coreavc is to decode high def content for the people without hardware acceleration (dedicated gpu). they'll never make a codec that supports hardware acceleration.

You CANNOT use hardware acceleration unless your codec supports it. so if you don't want to change codecs then you cannot pass the work onto gpu.

btw minimum requirement for 1080p playback with h264 or vc1 via software is a c2d at 2.0ghz+ dont expect a pentium 4 to do it, even with coreavc

google for avivo you should get some topics on it

I know CoreAVC is a software decoder. Like I said, CoreAVC has yet to support hardware decoding. Look at their website. GPU decoding will be in their future releases.
