    Hi i leave this information with NVENC on linux thanks to

    And nvidia with lastest 346.16 drivers


    For more information about how compile and install can see this

    In my case works however needs nvEncodeAPI.h from NVENC Windows SDK and cuda SDK installed too


    Without NVENC (Wine 1.7.31 + Nvidia 346.16)




    With NVENC (Wine 1.7.31 + Nvidia 346.16)

    Added other results with NVENC using other bitrates: 2500k - 3000k and 3500k


    NVENC 2500k (Wine 1.7.31 + Nvidia 346.16)




    NVENC 3000k (Wine 1.7.31 + Nvidia 346.16)




    NVENC 3500k (Wine 1.7.31 + Nvidia 346.16)

    Very cool. Are you using FFmpeg to record the screen or to convert your videos?

    No only for screencasting and runs much better than obs-studio with quality improvement (not same quality SSR*)

    *But main objective is have most close real performance machine

    I use simplescreenrecorder because its "light weight", but I've noticed that my games are still choppy when recording.
    Does FFMpeg run any better when games are set to high resolution and high graphic settings?

    In theory NVENC (hardware encoding dedicated unit) only stay using at 15 to 18% but this unit is designed for high resolutions, in theory must be run better in higher resolutions

    Dedicated unit? Is this a piece of hardware for encoding?

    Exactly is hardware encoding unit (screencasting normally use cpu) for this reason give more performance without impact gpu performance, like as intel quicksync or amd vce

    Hello guys,

    I'm Brainiarc7.

    If anyone here has a Windows build environment, they can try to build the package and see if it works.
    I tried cross-compiling for mingw32 target with mxe and the mingw-devel packages on Ubuntu and so far, the packages generated so far crash on startup on Windows 7. On Linux, under the mingw-runtime, they run fine.

    If anyone here can build this on Windows for testing, that would be awesome ;-)

    Hello,

    On Windows Vista and Windows XP, NVIDIA NVENC SIP blocks are not exposed to the system by the driver, so no.
    For libnvenc and similar implementations to
