Intel ARC encodes fail sporadically

Post by ochompsky »

Hi, my handbrake encodes occasionally fails and I cannot determine why. The encodes always succeed on a restart. I'm using a Sparkle Arc 310 ECO with the latest intel drivers at the time of this post. I'm always use the AV1 2160p Preset with Intel QSV.

The error always seems to be:
[06:14:51] sync: expecting 54117 video frames
hb_qsv_create_mfx_session: Error creating a MFX session: -9.
encqsvInit: MFXInit failed (-1313558101) with implementation 773
Failure to initialise thread 'Quick Sync Video encoder (Intel Media SDK)'

thanks, ill try this. i didn't even realize my computer had defaulted to balanced instead of high performance, which has ASPM off.

Balanced is fine, you just need to turn off the lowpower QSV mode in the HB settings.
