Decklink and NVencode


How can I get the live SDI input from a Blackmagic Decklink card into the Nvencode ?

Get “Blackmagic DeckLink SDK” (see forum but it seems that SDK was removed from public recently
Get “NVidia Video Codec SDK” (
And use C/C++ to make that work together (on linux or windows).

Ok thank you, this could be hard work for a newbie who has just bought a C++ book :)

Do you think that piping the ffmpeg Decklink command to NvEncode is a intermediate way to go ?

In the meantime I tried to pipe the Blackmagic Decklink card to the NvEncoder, but the Blackmagic only gives me uyvy422 and that is not what the NvEncoder can handle I think…
