CUDA-Enabled Application Crashes CUDA Crashes During Conversion

Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate 6 crashes with “Cuba” enabled. When disabled, the video conversion process completes normally. I have verified this dozens of times as well as tried various nVidia drivers for the GTX480.

Badaboom Video Converter crashes with “Cuba” enabled. When disabled, the video conversion process completes normally. I have verified this dozens of times as well as tried various nVidia drivers for the GTX480.

System specs:

Windows 7 64
nVidia GTX480
X58-based system
260.89 Driver

Tried both the latest Xilisoft business and home Video Converter Ultimate 6 and Badaboom.

This is the third or so post and all have been ignored. Perhaps some of you CUDA Think-Tanks can assume nVidia’s responsibility and answer why CUDA causes more problems than helps. I must have hit a sore spot because nVidia surely wont help!

So you have bought a sports car, turned the ignition and been rewarded with silence rather than a roaring engine.

You probably aren’t going to get an answer from anyone based solely on that description because there are literally thousands of things that could have gone wrong between the application and the hardware. You probably won’t get an answer from nvidia either. It isn’t the job of the company that designed the HW to support the other parts of the car. If it was, they would be stuck taking apart the transmission and debugging the on-board computer. The best thing to do would be to look for support from the company that designed the software (badaboom or video converter) as they probably know both how their application works and how CUDA works. It is a bit distressing that the applications simply crash on you without any indication as to why.

Other than that, some general advice would to try to get the most simple CUDA application possible to run. I would take a look at the deviceQuery functions from the SDK or something like this http://cuda-z.sourceforge.net/ . If these also fail then the problem probably lies with your CUDA installation. If they work, you will have to look deeper into either you CUDA installation or your encoding software for an answer.

thanks for sharing this useful info
but i like the following CUDA based Video Converter called Bigasoft Total Video Converter
reason 1 Optimized by NVIDIA® CUDA computing technology, Bigasoft Total Video Converter accelerates conversion to revolutionary fast. Converting video now is in minutes.

reason 2 it can achieve video conversion between a wide range of video formats, including AVI, Xvid, DivX, H.264, MP4, 3GP, MKV, WMV, RM, FLV, MOV, WebM, VP8, 720p, 1080p, 1080i HD, AVCHD videos and more.

reason 3 it can also convert between audio files like MP3, AAC, AC3, WAV, WMA, etc. Moreover, it can extract audio from video and music video by only a few clicks.

reason 4 it is equipped with advanced editing function. It enables to adjust audio volume, rotate video, add audio track and subtitle for video, increase artistic effects for video, add image or text watermark for video, split video, merge videos into one, trim and crop video, capture preferable picture from video and more.

Mac version at http://www.bigasoft.com/total-video-converter-mac.html

i wonder is there a way totally free

You should ask this question not to nvidia, but to program vendor. If program crushes on your Intel cpu, where do you go? To Intel site?

VideoSolo Video Converter Ultimate is also a Cuda video converter that can enable the video conversion speed to be faster.
