    Using CUDA for video conversion

    Hi,

    until now I used to convert my DVDs to DivX/Xvid and transfer em to my MediaHDD connected to my TV.

    I would like to change to h.264/mkv format because itīs more efficient.

    Do you know a tool that profits by NVIDIAīs CUDA-Engine but does NOT use NVIDIAīs h.264-libaries. Quality results by tools like NeroMove and others are -my impression- far behind common CPU encoders like Tmpeg.

    Thx for your help

    the latest version of Tmpeg uses cuda for some video filters.

    Thx for your quick answer ;-)

    Youīre right but due to the main encoding still is up to the cpu (Athlon64 X2 5000) I got 3 fps/s.

    Iīm looking for an app using cuda/gpu for the whole encoding.

    Thx again ;-)

    I have the impression that there isnīt a real gpu -without NVidia provided code- encoder released at all.
    I googeled alot yesterday and ALL of the above mentioned tools use the NVidia-libaries.

    Of course, all these tools deliver good speed but output quality at 2Mbit sometimes is crisp and blocky in fast scenes.

    At the same bitrate DivX wit 2-pass and GMC activated delivers better results.

    Maybe we got to wait for next gen tools using their own procedures with CUDA :-(
