MediaCoder 0.7.1 released – first free transcoder accelerated with NVIDIA CUDA technology (Stanley posted on June 8th, 2009 )

We are pleased to announce the release of the new version of MediaCoder 0.7.1. In this version, we start to make use of NVIDIA CUDA technology to accelerate H.264 encoding and video filtering.

A new encoder backend of “CUDA encoder” is added which can be chosen active on the Video tab.

MediaCoder with CUDA support

You can also choose to use CUDA-acceelerated video filters (currently only scaling and deinterlacing filters are available) by ticking the check box “Use Encoders’s Video Filter”.

System requirements for using MediaCoder with CUDA acceleration:

  • NVIDIA GeForce 8/9/GTX with at least 256MB display memory
  • NVIDIA GeForce driver 185.85 or later installed

Please note that MediaCoder’s CUDA support is still experimental. So please allow any unusability occurs and give us enough feedbacks.

    windows7 RC 最新的mediacoder 0.71 报 CUDA不能使用

    报:CUDA H.264 encoder is not included in this distribution.

    可是我下载的是最新版本的,ENCODER下拉框里面有CUDA encoder这一项,右边的属性里面也有CUDA的TAB。

    Great addition for sure! Running it on a gtx 280 is screaming fast…

    Only issue is aspect ratio’s. It dosen’t keep aspect ratios at 1280×544 and a few others.

    Other than that its much better quality output with a little tweaking than badaboom.

    forget ati, focus on CUDA

  5. Canon Macro lenses…

    In case you didnt realize, i am a photographer, furthermore in my profession, macro lenses are vastly significant….

    Any chance for an opencl video encoder? It’s opensource and works for both nvidia and ATI
