FEDORA-2020-d26d4080e0 created by rathann 11 months ago for Fedora 32
stable

What's new Media SDK 20.1.0:

API 1.32

  • Added Screen Content Coding (SCC) support to HEVC

HEVC encode

  • Component received major refactoring which limited cyclomatic complexity and made codec feature set composable
  • Enabled Sliding Window support
  • Enabled Weighted Prediction support
  • Enabled Fade Detection support
  • Fixed per-macroblock QP setting (MBQP)

VP9 encode

  • Stability improvement

AVC encode

  • Enable arbitrary reference field polarity on Broadwell and Skylake
  • Following attributes calculated based on media-driver capabilities instead of harcoded values:
  • Supported color formats: 8-bit only, 10-bit

MPEG-2 encode

  • Following attributes calculated based on media-driver capabilities instead of harcoded values:
  • Picture size limits
  • Frame skip support
  • Slice structure

HEVC decode

  • Added support for SCC

VP9 decode

  • Improved DRC handling

VPP

  • Fixed Motion-Compensated Temporal Filter (MCTF) on Icelake
  • Added mirroring support on Tigerlake

Samples

  • Improved 12-bit format support
  • Added command line option which force use fixed function (low-power) version of components where available
  • Documented ROI file format for sample_multi_transcode
  • Added BitrateLimit to command line option
  • Metrics Monitor let user specify a path to gfx device

Misc

  • Transient media surfaces used to perform system to gpu copying now allocated internally, bypassing user-supplied allocator
  • Build: version stored in root CMakeFile.txt, allowing suffix customization using MEDIA_VERSION_EXTRA define

Known issues

  • Kernel 5.0 have known issue with endurance on Skylake see https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=110285 for details.
  • Media Stack 20.1 with Linux kernel 5.0 may cause higher CPU usage and instability in endurance testing. Issue root caused to media driver see intel/media-driver#671 for details.

Limited support on certain platforms:

  • MPEG-2 encode is not supported on Apollo Lake
  • H.264 Flexible Encode Infrastructure only supported on Broadwell and Skylake
  • Multi Frame Encode (MFE), HEVC Flexible Encode Infrastructure only supported on Skylake
  • VP9 decoder is only supported on Kabylake, Coffeelake and Icelake
  • VP9 encoder is only supported on Icelake platform
  • Support for Tigerlake, Elkhartlake and Jasperlake platforms is preliminary and may not be fully functional
  • SW fallback is unsupported for all components but MJPEG

What's new Media SDK 19.4.0:

API 1.31

  • Added TGL, EHL, JSL platform support
  • Added 12-bit color formats
  • Added support for multiadapter configurations (integrated + discrete)
  • Added partial bitstream output (aka slice-based encode)

HEVC encode

  • Added support for 12-bit range extensions (TGL+)

VP9 encode

  • Stability improvement

AVC encode

  • Improved bit rate control

VP9 decode

  • Improved DRC handling

VPP

  • Removed shallow copy
  • Fixed Chroma Siting (#1737)
