Upgrading from Version 1.0.7 to 1.2.2 disables intel quick sync

Post by Pjautr » Thu Apr 11, 2019 3:41 pm

Description of problem or question:

I recently installed version 1.2.2 (from 1.0.7).

With version 1.0.7 I was able to use intel quick sync in both flavours 264/265. This I can tell because according to the tool sysexplorer GPU usage is high (6x to 9x %) and the transcoding time for a 90 min movie (up to and below resolution 720x576) is just some minutes.

With versin 1.2.2 intel qsv h265 does not even show up in the menu.
Intel qsv h264 does show up, but when choosen the GPU usage is about only 3% (CPU about 96%) and the transcoding time for the same movie is about 22 minutes. So obivously the gpu is not really used here.

From the activity log I learn, that version 1.2.2 says that the kaby lake cpu Pentium G4600 does NOT allow intel qsv 265.
Version 1.0.7 on the other hand says YES it does.

I also learn from the log (1.2.2) that (my interpretation) Handbrake DOES USE respective intel qsv264 library for encoding. But as I said above in the end does not (because of low GPU use / high CPU use and accordingly long encoding time.


Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):


HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):

1.2.2



Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):
Win7-64 Pro

In the following log I stopped the encoding process after 1 minute or so.

Your 1.2.2 logs uses qsv, but you are using decomb and comb detect filters that runs on the cpu.

Also note, your running older drivers so you'll want to update to the latest from Intel. They had several driver releases with non functional h.265 encoding though the API we are now using.

@ s55:
I am sorry but the drivers work fine with with HB 107.
The also do with other tools like xmedia-recode or mediacoder (latest versions of 2019) since 2 years.
Also the activity log of HB 1.2.2 says that API 1.3 is needed, but my drivers come with API 1.20.
Also HB 107 does correctly identify the GPU as capable of 265 hw encode.
I do not see any sign that my grafic drivers are faulty.

@ Ritsuka:
combing / decombing does not affect whether the intel qsv is working as it should (in the 60-to 90 % range or just a mere 2 to 3% range).
But to get sure I have tried it now with all filters OFF and the result is the same.

Re: Upgrading from Version 1.0.7 to 1.2.2 disables intel quick sync

Post by s55 » Thu Apr 11, 2019 7:11 pm

1.2.2 interacts with QuickSync in a slightly different way. It requires up-to-date drivers as there were bugs in earlier Intel drivers.

For your CPU, Decomb / filtering will severely bottleneck Quicksync, so what your seeing is expected.
Filters are before the encoder in the pipeline. They are CPU based. So if the filter can only run at say 10fps for example, you can't encode any faster than this.
Also the activity log of HB 1.2.2 says that API 1.3 is needed, but my drivers come with API 1.20.
Intels numbering scheme isn't the best. It's 1.Twenty. Not 1.two zero So your ok on the API side.

Re: Upgrading from Version 1.0.7 to 1.2.2 disables intel quick sync

Post by Pjautr » Thu Apr 11, 2019 8:30 pm

s55,

As you can see from my former answer, I have tested the effect of whether decomb has any effect: it makes no difference at all.
decombing a dvd-format-size movie is a ridiculous task for pentium g4600 and may hold the gpu back 1-2 percent points.

What is the activity log worth if on the one hand says that it is using intel qsv when in effect it is not?
when it reports hw encode YES for h264, but not for h265?
This is going via API 1.20 which is a working API ever since. then how should this suddenly be an error on intels side?
again, other up-to-date tools do not have this problems.

I start getting disappointed because of the up to now completely unsupported mantra saying "it is the drivers fault!"
All things so far do not show this to be the case.

Re: Upgrading from Version 1.0.7 to 1.2.2 disables intel quick sync

Post by s55 » Thu Apr 11, 2019 9:03 pm

We've had literally *dozens* of reports of a) No h265 encoder, b) Significantly slower speeds
Guess what, Driver updates installed corrected the issue for those users. (Infact, Intel explicitly call out HandBrake in their release notes on more than one occasion going back a few years for various issues that have crept up. They did contribute QSV to HandBrake)

Instead of arguing, why don't you try upgrading and see what happens ...


The API version is not an issue. You can access this API though different system interfaces. I.e Direct3D9 or Direct3D11
You can configure the instance in different ways. The particular changes we made triggered issues in some older drivers. Other apps not being affected is not relevant if other variables are different.

Your log also shows that is is using QSV. Low % usage does not mean it's not using it. Your getting a little over 80fps through the encoder in that last log.

Take my advice, or don't. Up to you.

Infact, case in point:

Remember also we have worked with and maintain contact with Intel people on hardware encoding features. Nobody's pointing fingers; Scott's analysis is quite well based on the facts.

@s55
Thank you very much for the link!!

I understand your advice well but I can't act on it. I am on Win7 with KabyLake cpu and I am using the latest vga driver for that. Intel stopped driver support for KabyLake on Win7 two years ago. I should have made that clear from the beginning.

So I learn from the information given (your link) that it is the combination of driver / hb that makes it or not. Older drivers like mine were working up to a certain version of HB (at least 1.0.7). At some point in time Intel made changes that slowed down qsv performance in HB or even made it impossible to use qsv from within HB because it disappeared from the available options menu. HB did not recognize the hardware anymore correctly. Then HB tried to accomodate for that in new versions (nightlies) and while adopting to the new situations dropped support for a once working intel driver (like mine). So it is not because my driver is in any way faulty with regard to qsv encoding (It did that excellent for two years), but because the more current HB versions can not talk anymore to the old intel driver which I am still using in a suitable way. So, Ok, I am busted.

According to the tests that were done (your link) I also learn that this problem started with HB 1.2.0 and "newer" intel drivers, which then HB started to solve in later releases (nightlies). This could mean that my old driver is compatible with HB 1.2.0.

Please, is there a download area you can point me to where I can get this old version and give it a try?

EDIT:
Thanks, found the place with old versions!!

Post by david3 » Sun Jun 23, 2019 3:50 pm

My reply's a bit late, but this may help. I recently reinstalled Windows 10 on my i7 2600K system (Sandy Bridge, 2nd gen) HD3000 graphics system. Windows installs a compatibility graphics driver, because I don't think it's officially supported by Intel anymore for Windows 10. After the reinstall, Handbrake didn't work with QuickSync anymore (it did before I reinstalled Windows).

I can't find the post anymore where I read it, but I seem to recall doing this before a long time ago, too, and it enabled QuickSync in even the later version of Handbrake 1.2.2. I installed the latest version of the Intel MediaSDK.

https://software.intel.com/en-us/media- ... oad/client

You have to register to download it, and it may give you a warning about wanting newer graphics support, but it installs fine, and afterwards QuickSync will work in Handbrake again.
