Hardware encoding/decoding


Looking at SDK 7.0.1 I see that hardware encoding/decoding can be available only for H.264 and not for VP8/VP9 - is that correct ?
Is there a reason why not enable it for VP8/VP9 as well ?


HI there!

We cannot enable hardware encoding for VPX because we need to use simulcast, which is not supported by the hardware codecs.

We could technically enable hardware decoding, but we saw may crashes in the past and chose not to.

Hi Saghul,

Is it possible to enable hardware encoding for VPX only in case of P2P ?


No, unfortunately it’s an all or nothing kind of situation.
