Hardware Accelerated Video Texture?

Considering how few folks are actually posting their questions here, I would hope this would be answered.
My question is regarding Hardware Accelerated Video Textures in Proscenium. Seeing how this API is being brought out by Adobe themselves and they have the ability to provide access to this feature, I'm curious why something like this has not been done?
The folks over at Away3D have detailed that they have also requested this support from Adobe but have not have any response from Adobe on this. This is pretty sad considering these guys actually develop this entire API on their own time with no financial support from Adobe.
Now that both Flash Player and AIR have been kicked in the teeth by the HTML5 / Javascript tidal wave, one would think Adobe would be paying attention to the developers who are still doing all they can with their technologies.
Hardware Accelerated Video Textures (H.264) in Proscenium (for web and mobile deployment) would be a great way to say to folks like me that you are still listening to the people using your tools.

Despite there being only a hand full of comments on the entire Proscenium board, it would appear that the Proscenium team doesn't have time to answer them.
In regards to this particular subject (that being hardware accelerated video textures) I don't think this is going to happen. I've personally spent the last year speaking to every person I could think of at Adobe, Away3D and even folks on the Proscenium team. The bottom line is that to do this Adobe must facilitate this capability. Away3D and other API providers cannot overcome the current obstacles to realize this feature. This all begins with Adobe providing access to these capabilities to the other API developers (Away3D).
When Proscenium first came on the scene, I immediately contacted the Proscenium team requesting this feature. I thought since Proscenium itself was being developed at Adobe, this features could be developed (at least as an experiment) more quickly. Alas no. I've gone so far as to contact several Adobe Evangelists telling them that the Away3D team would like access to this feature. Again, no. Just silence.
So, if want to create truly hardware accelerated video textures using a 3D API, forget it. (especially for mobile). Isn't going to happen. This is particularly true for iOS, where native H.264 support isn't supported on AIR.

  • Hardware Accelerated Video not working in 10.6.7

    Hi,

    I should point out that this error appears any time I use an application which uses hardware accelerated video, including Quicktime X, Safari/Webkit, etc. I have searched around for solutions to this problem, but haven't been able to find anything.
    Using internal/external display makes no difference either.
    So far, I have tried re-installing 10.6.7 using the Combined Updater; repairing disk permissions; using various different browsers; uninstalling Perian; and waving a stick over the Mac. None seem to have solved this issue, and I'm beginning to suspect this is a hardware problem.
    Does anyone know how I can fix this without sending it in to Apple?
    Thanks for your help.

    Ah yes, when you waved the stick over the Mac, you didn't tap three times on the monitor!
    Ok, kidding aside, you did backup your data right? Should do so because the next step is likely a bit risky.
    So you did reinstall OS X fresh, from the installer disks and then updated? Same problem? Right? ok.
    Have you turned off integrated graphics in the Energy savings panel yet? this forces the use of hardware graphics.
    Does it only occur in Safari, iTunes and Chrome?, cause all these are based upon the *cough* (insecure) webkit foundation. Perhaps Apple had to turn off somethings, perhaps that's reporting the errors.
    Alas, if your using Firefox are you having any issues?

  • No Hardware Accelerated Video without monochromatic flickering

    I have an ATI Radeon 5700, using fglrx/catalyst driver (weird crashes with FOSS driver, libva problems).
    In both Boxee and XBMC, iI set the hardware accelration option to auto-detect and it settles on VDPAU/VAAPI.
    Videos play, however all videos (not just HD) appear in a flickering monochrome.  If I set it to Basic Rendering, videos play fine, except for HD video which now stutter.
    VLC can play the same videos without any problems.
    So what should I do? Is there an amdcc setting I can manipulate to help with this, or do I just have to wait for for either media center to update their shiznit? I mean boxee barely works in arch (not without an insane amount of tweaking) but I'm fairly surprised XBMC gives me the same nonsense. 
    Thanks for your input!
    XBMC: 10.1-1 (extra)
    Boxee: 0.9.23.15885-3 (AUR)
    Catalyst: 11.2-1
    nomodeset is in grub, overscanning is in affect, and fglrx is loaded on boot.

  • Adobe Flash Media Live Encoder 3 - Video Hardware Acceleration Warning

    I have been looking for an answer for this error for a few days without any luck.
    I just loaded the Adobe Free Encoder 3 and the Flash Media Server (Free Version) on a Dell PowerEdge 1950 running Windows 2003 server standard edition with Service Pack 2.  The computer has an Intel Pentium III Xeon 2.66GHz Quad core processor with 4GB RAM.  I am using an Osprey 240 video capture card.
    The computer was previously running Windows Media Encoder and it was working fine, but I needed to upgrade to a flash stream.
    Whenever I start the Adobe Flash Media Live Encoder I get the following error:
    "The video card's hardware acceleration level is set too low.  Open the Display Properties, Settings tab and click Advanced, then select the Troubleshoot tab and increase the Hardware acceleration setting.  Then restart the application, etc...
    I did as instructed and it did not work. I also tried changing the display settings to lower and higher resolutions.  I also updated the video card to the latest drivers.  I double checked the hardware requirements.  http://www.adobe.com/products/flashmediaserver/flashmediaencoder/systemreqs/ and it looks like I'm ok.
    I also checked the approved hardware list http://www.adobe.com/support/documentation/en/flashmediaencoder/FMLE_DeviceMatrix3.0.pdf.
    The Osprey 240 is not listed, but that seems to be working fine.   
    I'm thinking that the internal video card that I have may not be compatible with the Adobe Encoder.  The video card that I have is an ATI ES1000 embedded video that has only 16MB of RAM.
    I have the latest version of DirectX - I ran DxDiag and it shows that I'm running DirectX 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904),  Under the Display tab it says that the DirectDraw Acceleration, Direct3D Acceleration and AGP Acceleration are not available.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks.

    Hi,
    Does this happen in Safe Mode or with extensions/plugins disabled? [[Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode]]
    [Try the add on HTTPS Everywhere and disable youtube.com in the HTTPS Everywhere rules and I can watch YouTube videos in this Firefox profile as long as it's not over SSL]
    In youtube you can also try to change the video quality or disable hardware acceleration.
    Some problems with Flash video playback can be resolved by disabling hardware acceleration in your Flash Player settings. (See [[Flash Plugin - Keep it up to date and troubleshoot problems|this article]] for more information on using the Flash plugin in Firefox).
    To disable hardware acceleration in Flash Player:
    #Go to this [http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/video-playback-issues.html#main_Solve_video_playback_issues Adobe Flash Player Help page].
    #Right-click on the Flash Player logo on that page.
    #Click on '''Settings''' in the context menu. The Adobe Flash Player Settings screen will open.
    # Click on the icon at the bottom-left of the Adobe Flash Player Settings window to open the Display panel. <br/> <br/>[[Image:fpSettings1.PNG]] <br/>
    # Remove the check mark from '''Enable hardware acceleration'''.
    # Click '''Close''' to close the Adobe Flash Player Settings Window.
    # Restart Firefox.
    This [http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/help01.html Flash Player Help - Display Settings page] has more information on Flash Player hardware acceleration, if you're interested.
    Does this solve the problem? Let us know.

  • Cs5 compatible laptop video cards with hardware acceleration

    Is there a list or does anyone know of laptops with compatible video cards for cs5 hardware acceleration? This would be for a windows 7 64bit system.'
    Thanks!

    its not so much a space issue as a power issue, but space is a concern too. I suppose I was looking for a list of laptop compatible cs5 cards. I know that there are cards out there that are and it would be wonderful if adobe compiled a list like they have for standard video cards. And yes you are right, a lot of the video cards listed on that page also have mobile counterparts but are not always compatible since they use different drivers.
    Does anyone have laptop experience with getting full hardware acceleration support?
    Thanks.

  • "video hardware acceleration required" message when opening any game

    Since I upgraded to OS X 10.9, none of my games will play. I also get an error while starting VLC. The message that I receive is "video hardware acceleration required". "Video hardware acceleration is currently disabled due to safe mode operation or a driver error. Please ensure that you have a working openGL hardware renderer and try again. All of these games and apps worked perfectly before the upgrade. Please help!

    In my case this was resolved by turning off display mirroring. It seems that something in Mavericks does not pick up the graphics card correctly when display mirroring is turned on.     

  • Adobe Flash with R9 290 Hardware Acceleration Black Videos

    I am not sure what causes this bug. I can restart the computer and it fixes the issue but randomly after a while it goes back to black. I can disable hardware acceleration and sometimes that works and sometimes it doesn't. There are 2 other people I know that had this issue. This happens to me both in Firefox and Chrome.
    http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-2179088/290-black-screen-issue-possibly-due-adobe-f lash.html#14303459
    I would report it to the bug site but it seems to be broken.

    R9 290 Black Video Bug - Imgur

    With hardware acceleration, we basically just hand everything off to the video card driver.  It's pretty much an on/off proposition.  My recommendation would be to install the latest AMD drivers that match that chipset to see if there are bugfixes that the OEM hasn't picked up.  Ongoing driver updates on these OEM cards typically aren't as good as what you'd get from an AMD-branded card, but the AMD drivers will typically work (but are unsupported) for the cards made by third-party integrators.  Just set a system restore point or keep a copy of the OEM drivers handy in the odd case you need to roll back.
    If you're experiencing this with hardware acceleration disabled, make sure that you're looking at Flash video.  YouTube serves a lot of HTML5 video these days.  If you right click on it and it says About HTML5, disabling hardware acceleration in Flash isn't going to help you.
    Anyway, if you're for sure looking at Flash videos that aren't rendering and hardware acceleration is disabled, please send me an exact link to the video that reproduces it.
    In addition, detailed information about your OS and the browser version would be helpful in attempting to reproduce it on our end.
    Thanks!

  • Once firefox 4.o was installed, full screen video produced white screen. Had to exit and and restart video. Using a mac os 10.5. Disabling hardware acceleration did not fix. went back to firefox 3.6 and all is ok. Any help would be appreciated.

    Once firefox 4.o was installed, when switching to full screen while watching any internet video produced a white screen but audio still playing. Switching back to small screen has a still video but audio still going. Had to exit and and restart video or open a blank new new tab then delete it and then small screen video would play. Using a mac os 10.5. Disabling hardware acceleration did not fix. went back to firefox 3.6 and all is ok. Any help would be appreciated.

    Your hardware was never designed to run that old a version of OS X, it's best to update the application or find another application that is more up to date. Installing Leopard simply will not work on your system.

  • Jittery Flash video on MacBook Pro (2011) with hardware acceleration

  • Hardware acceleration for AVC video playback

    Hello,
    I looked for Adobe forum for developers but failed, so forward me please if this is not right place for the question.
    We are developing a software that cuts out some unwanted scenes (such as advertisements) from a video (AVC  inside MP4) with partial reencoding of the source. The result video contains some original GOPs (with a pair of SPS/PPS)  followed by several reencoded GOPs (with another pair of SPS/PPS). Finally the video is played back with Adobe flash (e.g. StrobeMediaPlayback). The problem is that such videos are not played correctly with the latest Google Chrome (35.0.1916.153) and Adobe flash (14.0.0.125) on some configurations (e.g. Windows 7, 32-bit version, Nvidia card) when "Hardware acceleration" is switched on. Even if the second SPS differs from the first by even one parameter the second part of the video is not decoded. What does "Hardware acceleration" mean in this case? DXVA? Or does a browser decide what technology to use? Are there some known restrictions?
    Thanks

    OSMF is a framework built entirely in Actionscript 3.0, which means that it can only take advantage of those features which are enabled by the underlying Flash Player.  So no additional hardware acceleration.  That being said, we work closely with the Flash Player team and the FMS team, so any new features they add should find quick support in OSMF.

  • Video Green in Win8 with Hardware Acceleration enabled

    Hi, I need to be able to disable hardware acceleration in flash player in Windows 8. I managed to do this in the past, however after reinstallation this time I have been unsuccessful.
    Last time, I somehow managed downgrade to a earlier version which reinstated the disable acceleration tab in the flash player settings as the IE11 overall use software setting does not apply to flash player. I can see this from the debug code on videos.
    &decoding=accelerated
    Where as in Chrome, this says &decoding=software
    Any tips pleassssee?

    Hi Jeromie,
    I ended up solving this.
    1. Turns out it was being caused because I am using a patch driver to allow 120hz. http://www.monitortests.com/forum/Thread-AMD-ATI-Pixel-Clock-Patcher
    2. Was not allowing me to disable in Win8.1 ~ however now it does. IE11 is now allowing me to run software mode which has fixed all the green video issues caused by the patcher from above.
    I am not sure why before IE11 would just not take any notice of the use software mode setting. Maybe there has been an update, in the end I changed and tried so many different combinations I can't really pinpoint exactly what got it to work!!

I did the update but i noticed that with hardware acceleration enabled, any youtube video i see, safari freezes. Seems like it's loading continuously (even if the progress bar of the video is already red). But as soon as i disable hardware acceleration, all goes back as normal, no freeze. What's the problem?

  • Choppy Video w/Quicktime Hardware Acceleration Unchecked

    In every other application (PowerDVD, WinDVD. TMPG DVD Author, etc.) videos play smoothly without enabling hardware acceleration. In iTunes (7.6.1.9), I must enable the hardware acceleration checkbox in Quicktime to allow smooth playback, However, this compromises video quality. The gamma curve seems messed up, black levels are too high and music videos have a general "washed out" appearance. Playing the same video in Quicktime itself is perfectly smooth with hardware acceleration unchecked and the video quality looks great. Since iTunes uses the Quicktime engine, I do not understand why this is happening?
    I've put in a support request to Apple but no resolution, just the usual suggestions to download the latest nVidia drivers (done), uninstall/reinstall (done), etc. Same results on fast Ultra320 SCSI drive or Serial ATA drive.

    I would try rolling back to an older version of flash. I think some if the recent releases of flash have been ultra buggy. I have quite a powerful laptop cpu/gpu and recent versions of flash are a bit choppy for me too. This forum has had a huge increase in posters with problems. Video should pose no problem for a computer even if it is a few years old.
