H.265 (AMD VCE) encoding problem

Post by Hodrakir » Fri Dec 28, 2018 10:58 am

Description of problem or question:
I have an AMD RX580 graphics card running with an AMD Ryzen 1700x. I encoded some video files with the new H.265 (AMD VCE) codec and I think I found a bug. The resulting files look perfect and the encondig times are now a third of what they were before (around 80 FPS). However it is not possible to move in the timeline of the video. It always starts again. I have tested this on three different players with the same result on all (VLC windows 64 bits, MX Player Pro on Android TV and Dune Solo 4K).
Now I am re-encoding these files with x265 and with it they work again correctly... Unfortunately, I'm also back to my old FPS rate (around 30 FPS).
Greetings and thank you all for your excellent work.



Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):




HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):

1.2.0


Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):

Windows 10 Creators Update (1803)

Re: H.265 (AMD VCE) encoding problem

Reported here: https://github.com/HandBrake/HandBrake/issues/1561

We don't have any work around currently but as far as I know, it only affects the VCE encoder.

My guess is it might be related to another issue with chapter timings and the lack of I/IDR frames.

I'm impressed by the work with my RX580 from the latest release of HandBrake (1.2.1). It seems that all the previous problems have been solved, but in addition the conversions to H.265 using the AMD codec gets the 370 f.p.s. (H.264 to H.265 720p) on average. Not below 180 f.p.s. when I convert to H.265 1080p... Unbelievable.
Congratulations to all the development team for this excellent work. Thank you.
Greetings

Hi.
After installing the Radeon latest drivers (v.19.4.1) the average FPS has dropped to 80 f.p.s.
I needed to go back to the previous version (18.5.1) in order to keep above 300 f.p.s.
I suppose that some internal change in the code does not allow HandBrake to work so efficiently.
