Where the OBS AMD Encoder Is Heading

If you’ve actively watched the OBS AMD Encoder repository, you most certainly noticed a huge gap in code submissions and sudden bursts of commits now. This all has a reason. Read more

FFMPEG with AMF Encoder now available!

Just quickly dropping by to update everyone on the current status of AMF in ffmpeg. The integration has been merged on 27th November 2017 after much discussion about including or not including a necessary header, and Zeranoe has started including said encoder in the latest builds. So if you were waiting for a public build, you can grab Zeranoes builds here or my older one from here.

The ‘Ashes of the Phoenix’ Update (AMF Encoder Plugin v2.0.0.0)

The plugin rises from the no-update-phase back to bring you an even better experience with High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) encoding, Variance Based Adaptive Quantitization (VBAQ), Pre-Pass support and Asynchronous Queue mode. Read more

The Encoder Rebirth Update (OBS Studio AMD Encoder Plugin v1.9.9.6)

Today I bring you one of the only public pre-releases that are going to happen, as everything else requires AMD to release a Driver which fixes the AMF runtime and firmware. But enough of me, here’s the update which is the true star of this post: Read more

The future of AMD Encoder: HEVC on RX 4xx, Pre-Pass, VBAQ and more!

AMD released version 1.4 of the AMF SDK back in January and I quickly got to work familiarizing myself with the changes and new sample tools. I did some rather extreme tests with the encoder, which resulted in me reporting 8 Issues to the AMF Issue Tracker – mostly GPU crashes or encoding failures. But with that out of the way, Patrons have now finally received the first official pre-release build, just as I promised back in December 2016. But what’s actually inside? Read more

The Encoder Plugin has finally reached 1.3.0!

It has been a long road from 1.1.2 to 1.3.0 now, even going through two complete rewrites and a huge amount of pre-releases and release candidates. It definitely would not have been possible without all the support I have gotten throughout developing the plugin, be it through reporting issues, using the plugin, spreading the word or generally just chatting with me. Special thanks go out to my Patreon supporters:┬áKytos, nwgat.ninja, Markus, vektorDex, SneakyJoe, Kristian Kirkesaether (Sorry, I don’t know how you do the messed up ae), AJ, Jeremy Nieth, John Difool, Nico Thato and DaOrgest.
