Does QSV have an upper limit on resolution? I run in native 2560x1600 and when I try to use QSV in anything greater than downscaling to 1.50 (1706x1066) it pops up the qsvimpl invalid parameter error and crashes out.
Sandy Bridge has an upper limit of 1920x1200 unfortunately, on Ivy Bridge and later it's something 4K

On win8, only igpu, 15.31.17 drivers, qsvimpl=,d3d9,1.4, dark stream on twitch and he says not supported format, log http://speedy.sh/jzmYE/2013-10-17-2031-07.log

Quick Sync is enabled, 4% cpu usage by OBS.exe. If qsv not been enabled cpu usage be like 80% because i choose slower preset in x264 encoder.

Now try Win7 with extra settings...

Same result, maybe intel "fix" something, like they fix no overclock on chipset b85. My motherboard is for sandy bridge, but processor is on ivy-bridge. It's just not qualified guesses. Maybe in future it will work for me.

For now latest drivers(15.31.17) don't work for me and it's not a problem, use older one without issues.
I see; the issue with your iGPU not being logged by obs should be fixed. No idea what to do about the newer drivers though, but as long as it works with the older drivers … you are probably right on the random "fix"/incompatibility introduced by intel or Sandy Bridge class mainboards having wonky support for Ivy Bridge (graphics)

Is QSV effected by changing my presets? Wasn't sure since it's using a different part of my CPU. Still figuring out the QSV settings. As of late I've been able to get a much better video picture. Doubling my buffer has really helped.

BUT, one problem I had with a recent broadcast/test was some severe pixelation! You can see the pixelation at around the 25 second mark and even more throughout the video below...

Any idea as to what could be causing that? Leaving my log below.

QSV is not affected by presets. Hardware encoders are generally very limited in the settings you can tweak on them.

solidxpanda... that past broadcast you linked, is quicksync @ 3500 bitrate? What sorcery is this? And to the mods, does the generation of intel HD graphics play a role in quicksync quality?

Without a ''higher'' bitrate I couldn't get a picture without blockyness.

Clear, yes! But the weird video blurs at 0.27 and so on weren't cool :(. I'm trying to figure out what caused that exactly.

Its the HD4600 , haswell is already really advanced and looks quite good compared to the "garbage" that sandy & ivy´s hardware encoder produce.

So would that make the i3 4330 or 4340 the goat of cheap gaming/streaming builds? And onto panda, hopefully you get an answer, because if you can eliminate that problem, you'd have one amazing looking stream for 5% cpu usage. I'd love to see how it would look if you streamed ssf4AE on pc @ 1080p. Btw, I used to actually watch your stream when you had latif playing in those ft10s. Sucks that he had to move away, definitely my favourite player and the viper that I'll never be!

Yeah, if my internet was sufficient I'd definitely test 1080p. And nice to know! Glad you enjoyed the stream. I miss Latif :(.
