Intel Quick Sync, Another Boost for Crazy Fast Video Conversion

June 8th, 2011 by DVDFab-Johnson 112,607 views

DVDFab integrated Intel Quick Sync technology in DVD Ripper, Blu-ray Copy, Blu-ray Ripper, and Video Converter for a much faster video conversion starting from DVDFab 8.0.9.6 Beta.

Intel Quick Sync is a 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processor based hardware acceleration technology which accelerates video decoding and encoding, and at the same time, allows the processor deal with other tasks simultaneously. As a result, video conversion is much faster, and your computer performs better than before.

Note that within all the Intel Quick Sync supported DVDFab products, Blu-ray Copy uses this tech only for video decoding, all the other products – DVD Ripper, Blu-ray Ripper, and Video Converter – make it to fully function in both decoding and encoding.

If you have DVDFab 8.0.9.6 Beta + installed on your computer, and you have supported hardware (Intel Sandy Bridge(SNB)CPU; Intel G45/GM45 Express Chipset; Intel HD Graphics) on your computer for Intel Quick Sync, then you can enable this high tech in DVDFab for a crazy fast conversion.

DVDFab 8.0.9.6 Beta now available for download at:

    Nothing past 8.0.8.5 has worked on my computer. I am running an I7 860 with 8 gigs of ram. I am using Windows 7 64 bit professional. The newer versions just get to the fuel gauge and never beyond that. It just looks and looks and never finds a dvd. The old versin works just fine. I keep trying each newer version and none of them work. What is with DVDFAB?? I emailed them about this and they simply said there must be something wrong with my computer. Everyone’s computer. I think not. Something is wrong at DVDFAB management. They prefer to ignore a problem rather than address it.

    I see DVDFAB bragging that pretty soon their newer versions will work on a Mac. They ignore that fact that they have changed it enough to stop working on PCs. I guess they have to decide which platform they want to support. It certainly looks like they are abandoning the PC.

    Hi michael,

    Please open “Common Settings” window, click on “Pathplayer”, deactivate it to copy DVDs again,you can also try to click on “Common Settings/Read”, change the I/O mode to see if you can get through this loading DVD problem.

  • DVDFab-Johnson

    Mac version is an no easy task, well, an hesitate release of DVDFab mac version is irresponsible for customers. Many customers has suggest us to provide the mac version, we also want to provide mac version for all users, but till now, we are still on the way. As we want to make it better, and try our best to ensure the smooth use of DVDFab for every DVDFab users.

  • sunny

    We will never abandon the pc users. Please check if you have a newer firmware for DVD drive to upgrade. Or you can unplug the DVD drive then plug again if it is a USB device. Then restart DVDFab Qt, load movie DVD to see the result.

    to copy your DVDs.

  • Piere Beaureard

    bonjour,,,,,,,,,,,,j.aimerai savoir si la version gratuite marche encore ………..quand je la prend il a juste décripter HD qui marche

  • DVDFab-Johnson

    Bonjour Piere,
    Quand à votre question, tout d’abord, Decrypter HD n’est capable que de ripper le disque entier ou le film principal sur le disque dur, il ne peut compresser, graver, diviser ou personnaliser les films. Si vous pouvez faire tout ce qui précède, il signifie que vous utilisez la version d’essai 30 jours qui va revenir à la version gratuite après l’essai. Pour la version gratuite, seulement une partie des ses fonctions sont disponibles, vous pouvez payer le logiciel pour avoir les fonctions complètes. Merci pour votre support à DVDFab.

    i am having issues with intel quick sync settings (and settings in general) not being saved in the latest versions (i even tried the latest beta 8.0.9.9)

    how are we supposed to receive support via the forum when registration is currently disabled?

  • n__m

    oh, and i meant to say when the Intel Quick Sync codec works, it works insanely well.
    i currently get encoding speeds around 100fps for 1080p and over 120fps for 720p.
    quite brilliant really, so thanks

    Hello,

    Im using DVD Fab BlueRay Ripper 8.1.0.3 and Im quite impressed by the fast decoding/encoding.
    At the moment Im ripping a BlueRay 1:30h to MKV with re-encoding.
    Unfortunately I cannot choose Intel Quick Sync for VC-1 decoding. It says the Decoder is not supported, but I have a i7-2600k with z68 board and it should?!

    Another issue I experience is that when using quick sync for encoding h264 it takes about an hour to complete with CUDO only half an hour.
    I got double fps while using my GTX 570 instead of quick sync. I thought it should be vise versa actually – shouldnt it?

    Best regards,
    Florian

  • DVDFab-Johnson

    Hi Flo, for your problem, you may check if there is a newer driver for your intel graphic cards to update.
    Try to change the h264 decoding as intel quick sync, the h264 encoding as Software, then rip your blu-ray movie to see if the encoding will speed up or not. I’m sorry to tell you that DVDFab can not support the VC 1 decoding currently, this feature shall be added in the future versions, i hope the above said infor would be helpful to you. If you still have any problems, please feel free to contact us.

  • Flo

    Hello,

    thanks for your answer.
    Unfortunately the Blue Rays are encoded with VC-1 and not with h264, so I would need to use it to rip blue rays ;)
    So I will need to stick with cuda or software in this case I assume or choose another software supporting this.

    Anyway encoding seems to be the more resource intensive part so I could use Quick Sync to re-encode the VC-1 blue ray (after it has been decoded by cuda or software) to h264.

    Unfortunately I do not see any performance benefit and I do have the latest Intel Graphics Drivers installed.

    Is there anything else you could imagine to try to get Quick Sync working properly?

    Is there any routine within the dvd fab that verifies that quick sync is used when choosing quick sync, or could it be for some circumstances that its running in software mode, even after choosing quick sync vor h264 encoding?

    Best regards,
    Florian

    I already have the

  • DVDFab-Johnson

    Hello, Florian, If your hardware allows you to set both video decode and video encode as intel qucik sync, DVDFab should follow the setting to take this Intel quick sync acceleration into effect. DVDFab won’t change to Software unless your CPU is not Sandy bridge, which means you can not apply intel quick sync for video encode, DVDFab will default to Software for smooth ripping.

  • Flo

    Hey again,

    well I have a Core i7-2600k sandybridge with an z68 asus p8z68-v pro mainboard, supporting Quick Sync.
    The latest Intel Graphics Driver is installed 8.15.10.2361.
    When I use Software Mode vor VC-1 (blue ray ripping) end re-encode to MKV (with Quick Sync) I get about 30fps encoding with the MKV default profile. When I choose Softare Decode & Software+CUDA Encode to MKV I get 60-70fps encoded.
    Im using a GTX 570 for CUDA.

    From the test results I have read the Quick Sync should be faster than this GPU?

    I have no clue why this is not working.
    DVD Fab even displays that it is using Quick Sync:
    “Intel GPU acceleration for video encoding enabled”

    Best regards,
    Florian

  • Flo

    by the way, I just tested Cyperlinks new Media Espresso which supports Quick Sync.
    And it works fine, a video transcoding with Quick Sync is 3 times faster than with CUDA.
    So it does not look as it would be a problem with the driver or something else.
    Are there any known issues with Asus Boards, because they have Lucid Virtu to choose between iGPU Mode and dGPU mode.

    Best regards,
    Florian

  • DVDFab-Johnson

    Hi, Florian, thanks for your test on DVDFab, sometimes, different Blu-ray source will have different conversion speed.The test should be carried out under the equivalent conditions.

  • Flo

    Hey,

    thanks for your quick reply!
    I will test this out and let you know.

    Cheers!

    Hi DVDFAB-Johnson

    Just a thought.

    To help with performance testing, it would be nice if DVDFab could provide some sort of default public domain Standard Blue Ray test file, which everyone could use to benchmark the different options (CUDA, Software, AMD, Quick Sync, etc)

    People could run the file through a conversion, where the hardware of the users machine would be pivot point of how well the software performs.

    Could even work in some sort of functionality into DvdFab, which would allow the capture of some sort of mini results & hardware details using a single central button (for Posting)

    Maybe have the ability to upload it to DVDFab for others to review.

    Sort of like what Passmark.com does for their benchmarking application.

    I’ve recently put together a machine, which takes any where from 75 minutes to 6 hours (depending on options and what Video card is active) to down sample a BD50 (43 Gig) to a BD25(around 22 gig)

    No idea if this is good or not as I don’t usually convert any of my blue rays, and there doesn’t seem to be any standard on comparing results.

    Honestly put this machine together to goof around. To see how fast the new i7′s are, and how well cuda works over software rendering, and Quick Sync.. (Might be trying out some PC games on it too :-)

    Its a i7-2600, 16 gig (2x 2×4) dual channel 1333mhz, Gigabyte Z68x-UD3H-B3, 64 gig SSD (OS/TEMP), a 2 TB seagate Green Sata2 drive, a EVGA Gforce 560 ti w/ 1gb DDR5, Zoltac Gforce 450 GTS Gforce 8400 w/ 512, and the Sandy bridge HD onboard Graphics

    Currently looks like I can get software, and CUDA working; but not Quick Sync.

    Just don’t know how well they work, in comparison to how well they could be working…..

    Thank you very much for your advice Wal,but we only encourage our users to research and learn the blu-ray and dvd discs they purchased.Our software is only to provide users a better user experience in blu-ray and dvd entertainment. Quick Sync can only be supported by certain CPUS, but not all CPUs, so you should make clear that whether your CPU support that function.If you want to have a test, you may use your own video which you owned the copyright to have test, and see how it works. If you have anyother ideas, please send us an email at service@dvdfab.com or post your ideas onto our facebook fanpage at:http://www.facebook.com/dvdfab
