QSV encode option suddenly missing

Mar 19, 2015 at 8:41 AM
Opened up VidCoder like I have a million times, and for some reason the QSV option are no longer in the "Video Codec:" drop-down menu! I have x264, x265, MPEG-4, and MPEG-2 but not QSV.

I tried un/reinstalling, removing and trying an older version, upgrading that older version, and installing the latest two Beta releases. No QSV, strange!

QSV support is dependent on your processor and oddly on your monitor as well. You need an Intel HD display for it to work.

I know that QSV requires a monitor connected to an Intel display adapter and I have that. I have been using QSV acceleration every day since it was implemented in Handbrake. I did not change my drivers, CPU, or monitor in the last 48 hours. I have five QSV-enabled presets, and now when I open those presets the QSV option (that was there 2 days ago) is GONE:

Hmm is there anything interesting in the logs? Is the option gone in HandBrake as well?

I fixed it. After uninstalling, I scoured the filesystem and registry for leftovers and deleted everything. Reinstalled, now I have QSV back! Lost all my presets but oh well :)
