    Learn how to configure and run NVIDIA NVENC accelerated encoding on Amazon EC2 using a g2.2xlarge instance type. We currently don't provide a pre-built Amazon Machine Image (AMI) that works on this instance type. However, you can install Wowza Streaming Engine™ software on this instance type to get NVENC accelerated encoding. ...

    When using NVIDIA NVENC hardware with older graphics drivers in your transcoding setup, you may notice that visual artifacts or reduced quality may appear every few seconds in the transcoded stream frames. This may be more noticeable on lower bitrate output renditions. This occurs because the default settings for the NVENC encoder constrain the keyframe bitrate so that the keyframe quality is reduced.

    Updating the graphics driver for your NVIDIA hardware to the latest version or raising the bitrate settings of the video encoding presets in your transcoder template often resolves the problem. If that doesn't work, you can use the following workaround to reduce the effect and improve the stream quality. ...

    Wowza Transcoder supports Intel Quick Sync and NVIDIA NVENC accelerated encoding on Windows and Linux operating systems and NVIDIA CUDA accelerated encoding on Windows. When Wowza Transcoder is invoked for the first time, it checks to see if any hardware acceleration resources are available and logs this information in the Wowza media server access log files ([install-dir]/logs/wowzastreamingengine_access.log or [install-dir]/logs/wowzamediaserver_access.log). This article describes what to look for in the logs to determine if hardware acceleration is available and if it's being used. ...

    Double-rate deinterlacing uses the individual interlaced fields to create frames at twice the original frame rate of the video. The advantage is that for high motion video, such as sports, motion is more fluid. The disadvantage is that the quality of each frame can be a bit lower. ...

    Wowza Transcoder always provides transcoded streams that use the same frame rate as the original video source. Some clients may not be able play streams with high frame rates. For example, you have a video source with a high frame rate, say from an HD video source encoded at 60 frames per second (fps) and you want to restream to devices that can't play at more than 30 fps. You must reduce the frame rate of the transcoded output stream(s) to support these devices. ...

    Some video encoders don't include frame rate information in stream metadata (SPS NAL unit VUI data and SDP data). Transcoder needs proper frame rate information to configure the encoding sessions. When frame rate information isn't available, Transcoder assumes the frame rate is 29.97 frames-per-second. When this happens, you'll see the following log statement: ...
