QuickSync

by ZrC » Thu Mar 26, 2020 8:44 am

I tried emailing support but did not receive a reply. I cannot get sighthound to use QuickSync. Plex will use it when needed so I know its available and working on the system. Is there any config file or setting I need to edit to enable QuickSync? I am using a Intel CPU with HD630 graphics.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. Your blog states version 6 of Sighthound uses Intel GPU offloading. Why are the streams not utilizing the GPU?

GPU Offloading
The new computer vision engine can utilize Intel GPUs (starting from 6xx series). While those are no speed demons by any means, they do help with taking some load off the CPU. And as we’ve mentioned before, NVIDIA GPU integration is coming soon.
