    Smile Nvidia Cuda and/or Intel Quick Sync transcode option

    I've been using Mezzmo for years and love it! However if it's possible I'd like to see Nvidia's Cuda and Intel's Quick Sync as transcoding options in the future. I have a i7 2600k cpu so transcoding usually isn't an issue however sometimes it'd be nice to use something that's a bit more powerful and faster or to use one of them (Intel Quick Sync) so I can pretranscode while gaming/watching youtube without having to suffer performance loss (Love smooth as silk performance). The Intel GPU isn't being used much anyways for me so it'd be great to put it to good use. In case it's mentioned I have changed cpu priority for certain circumstances but sometimes it's not enough for the higher quality movies.

    Anyways don't know if it'll be possible but if it is I'd love to have the options and I'm sure others may as well.

    Regardless thanks for the amazing work that's already been done, best media server out there IMO.

    Thanks for the suggestions. A few users has requested Cuda & QuickSync in the past so both ideas are on our development task list. We use ffmpeg.exe for audio/video transcoding so we are dependant on the FFmpeg developers making progress in this area and showing that there's significant performance benefits when using these technologies.

    The current version of FFMPEG now takes advantage of Intel's Quick Sync hardware for encoding / decoding. If your CPU supports Quick Sync, this may speed up transcoding from 2x to maybe as much as 10x.

    FFMPEG can use CUDA for filtering but not for decoding / encoding. See https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/HWAccelIntro

    Mezzmo v5.0+ has hardware transcoding via Intel Quick Sync. Go to the Transcoding Settings dialog to turn it on.

    FYI - You'll need to have the proper Intel video drivers installed on your system for the "Use Quicksync" option to be available. Even without those drivers, Windows can use some generic video drivers and you'll have a display. But without the drivers from Intel, harware acceleration isn't really working for Video or transcoding. The Intel Driver Utility will look at your system and give you an easy way to download and install the latest drivers for your hardware. See => http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/...rt/detect.html
