Nvidia NVENC Encoder not working ?

Post by Lagodass » Sun Apr 28, 2019 4:47 am

Hello,

I try to shrink down the size of my BD and DVD collection, so I try to use HandBrake.
The probem is, the option "NVENC" doesn't seem to work : a test video takes the same amount of time to encode, NVENC enabled or not.

My CPU is Core i5-2500k @3.30 GHz
My GPU is GTX 1080 Ti

I guess the GPU should make a difference in the time of achievement...

Am I right ?
Any Idea to fix it ?

Cheers

"NVENC" and "GPU" are not the same thing - the NVENC hardware is installed on the same board as the GPU, but isn't the same hardware.

Without the logs, it is impossible to say what is wrong or how to fix it. Logs tell us what hardware was seen and what drivers are present.

Just to be sure, you went to the video tab and changed the encoder to NVENC?

Handbrake is not detecting support for either QSV or NVENC on your system. You're using the x265 encoder, which is software only.

Support for hardware encoding is dependent upon having both the hardware AND drivers that support the encoders.

NVENC support is listed separately from the QSV stuff (or not listed at all, cannot remember). The GPU at least should be NVENC HEVC capable, but no idea about whether other requirements are missing.

Hello,
I investigated the stuff a little bit further...
@BradleyS : I did, for sure. I tested with and without it ticked.
@Woodstock : I'm not sure about what you exactly mean, but my computer has drivers and hardware able to encode with h265 HEVC

I spent time to investigate, and here is the point where I am :
- I probably didn't selected the good video codec, in the video tab.
- If you enable NVENC in the preferences menu, you have to restart Handbrake to make it appears in the codecs list (I got this idea when writing this post ^^ ).
- I don't know if adding a Fast Fourrier Transforming dll was necessary (libfftw3-3.dll , libfftw3f-3.dll , libfftw3l-3.dll )

I almost manage to find the solution, but :
- Despite the encoding speed is about 3 times faster (4-5 fps, vs 14-17 fps, in average), it's quite disappointing, because (assuming my CPU is a bottleneck in this task) neither my GPU (obvious) nor my CPU (strange) are at full load.
- I first managed to use my GPU with StaxRip, and the encoding speed is about 150-180 fps (yes, approximately 30 times faster than only with my CPU, and 10 times than handbrake), all things almost equal otherwise, for what I know.

Here is my last log :

Disable any filters you don't need and be mindful of audio encoding happening on the CPU.

I use yadif to deinterlace (curiously necessary...) but, it seems the slowness comes from the "deblock" filter. I reduced it to 0, and I have an average fps of 150 (vs 170 with StaxRip, but probably with a different way to calculate it).

It seems I reached a correct speed of work !

Thank you all

That would do it. Deblock is single-threaded. We're looking at replacing the current deblock with a better one, which should also be faster: https://github.com/HandBrake/HandBrake/pull/2028

Glad you got it sorted. :)
