MediaCoder 0.8.59 has been released, with support for hardware accelerated decoding and AMD’s AMF accelerated encoding, both via FFmpeg. Being nearly 15 years old, MediaCoder is still having a solid user base which is so amazing to me whenever I realize this. I won’t give any imprudent promise of great new features, but I will definitely keep improving it and enjoying from doing so.
To enable GPU decoding, tick the GPU check box by the Video Source option. To use AMF for encoding, it’s slightly more inconvenient, as AMF auto detection is not yet implemented. Set Video Encoder to FFmpeg, click the Video Encoder button to call out advanced settings and change GPU Encoding option to AMF.
