Hello all – I just recently put together a QSV HW transcoder using an i7-11700 (UHD750) on an ASUS B560M-A mobo, 32GB ram, and 512GB NVME drive with Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and Plex. I realize this is very much overkill, but I have some other plans for this build once I can wrap my head around the QSV issue. Got everything installed and, while the computer runs fantastically, I can’t seem to get the hardware transcoding working. I upgraded the kernel to 5.12 and 5.13 and still can’t seem to get HW transcoding working properly. I’m a newbie with Linux, so there’s a chance I’ve gunked something up.
I don’t even know where to start really. The tips I’ve found from various forums haven’t seemed to work. Does anyone have recommendations?
