I started using the CUDA encoder library and had some success with it. However the documentation is quite sketchy. So I’m wondering how I would facilitate lossless encoding with it. Usually in H264 this is done by qp=0 but apparently the cuda encoder works differently. Any ideas on how to set the parameters to get lossless quality?
As a sidenote, from the SDK example it seems like decoding is somewhat more difficult than encoding. Does anyone have experience with writing a decoder?
Thanks, I’ll give the decoder a try soon. I really hope NVIDIA extends their documentation there a bit in the future.
Now hopefully someone can also help with the encoding parameters. The idea is that I don’t want to build comprehensive encoding and decoding solutions but use H264 as a data storage format within an application. And for that it’s important to start evaluating lossless compression first. If only I knew how to set it…
