TX2 support for MPEG-4 encoding

Hi All,

Does NVIDIA plan to implement hardware accelerated MPEG-4 encoding for the TX2? I realize it is quite an old standard by now, but some of our customers still require it.

I have tried encoding via the CPU with FFmpeg just for a test. At 1080P it is able to reach 25 FPS, while top shows about 215% CPU. This was encoding from a single file in a loop, though my actual use case will be encoding from the camera input.

Prior to this test, I ran the following, which seemed to give the best numbers, FYI:

sudo ./jetson_clocks.sh
sudo nvpmodel -0
sudo echo performance | sudo tee /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor

Thanks,

Chris Richardson

Hi Chris,
I am sorry but it is not in plan.

Hi DaneLLL,

Thank you for the answer. That’s too bad, but I’m glad to know a definitive answer.

Thanks,
