Ok, is there something apart from the sparse documentation on enabling NVENC for my transcoder/transrate?
I have an EC2 instance, g2.2xlarge, running off the ec2.nvidia.ami with Wowza 4.2 installed and running. under Ubuntu 12.04.5.
I have the most recent drivers installed (Driver Version: 352.21) and it is working on the server side:
Timestamp : Sat Jun 27 01:26:48 2015
Driver Version : 352.21
Attached GPUs : 1
Product Name : GRID K520
Product Brand : Grid
I have the Encoder implementation NVENC in each transcode setting in both transcode and transrate. I also have NVCUVID as the decoder implementation.
But everytime I push a stream to the transcoder I get this in the log:
2015-06-27 01:20:39 UTC comment server INFO 200 - JNI:TranscoderSession.isCUDAAvailable[_defaultVHost_remnorec/_definst_/Live_1_1@307544]: NVidia hardware acceleration is NOT available - - - 1308.152
Given past things I have worked through, I know it is going to be a simple thing that I missed. I think I have all the corners of configuration handled, but I am missing something.
Anyone go through this and have a quick idea on where to go. This is crazy. I feel like I am now just throwing spaghetti at the wall with thoughts and ideas.
