I’m trying to test ffmpeg with nvidea acceleration following the instructions here: http://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/redist/ffmpeg/1511-patch/FFMPEG-with-NVIDIA-Acceleration-on-Ubuntu_UG_v01.pdf
I am working on an AWS g3.16xlarge running Ubuntu 18.
I have got to the point where I apply the ffmpeg_NVIDIA_gpu_acceleration.patch and finally got that to work having reverted my ffmpeg to commit to the one the patch was created against using
git checkout b83c849e8797fbb972ebd7f2919e0f085061f37f
But the problem now is that the ffmpeg configure fails with “error: ‘x264_bit_depth’ undeclared” presumably because my x264 version is too new for the older ffmpeg version.
I tried reverting x264 to an earlier commit (2451a728246) but it still doesn’t work.
Is there a newer version of the ffmpeg_NVIDIA_gpu_acceleration.patch which will work with the latest version of ffmpeg please?
Alternatively, could you please tell me which x264 version was used in your installation please?
