Wrappers for CUDA Video Decoder and Encoder APIs?

Jul 26, 2014 at 12:45 PM
Hi All!

I have been working with managed cuda for a few weeks now, and I love it!

Are there any plans for the managed cuda team to create managed wrappers for the Nvidia Video Codec SDK? (NVENC and NVCUVID APIs)

Best regards,

I have tried to establish a wrapper based on the encoder and decoder classes from the CUDA based SDK some time ago, but it turned out to be too messy and too much work, why I stopped it. Also a fully functional wrapper integrating itself nicely in the C#/.net world is not straight forward and needs a lot of effort and time for testing and maintenance, another reason those wrappers are missing.
I can only encourage others to start the work, either as a part of managedCuda or as an independent project, for the moment I don't have any plans to do it.
