Help with HW Acceleration...

  • I am attempting to reconfigure my Shinobi installation to support HW Acceleration. I am using an Nvidia GT 610 and have installed the Nvidia 390 drivers with cuda support.

  • "The GeForce GT 610 card is a rebranded GeForce GT 520."

    Your card is a "GF119-300-A1".

    "If the codename of your graphic card begins with GK (Kepler microarchitecture), GM (Maxwell microarchitecture) or GP (Pascal microarchitecture) then your graphic card does support NVENC; if not then your graphic card does not support NVENC"

    You do not have a built in H264 encoder on your GPU and will not be able to use NVIDIA NVENC.


    Please refer to this list for NVENC capable cards. (There's a complete list button down the bottom, just click "GeForce/TITAN"
