Hardware Transcoding - Xpenology DS918+ / Bootloader 1.04b


Question

Hey guys,

 

I am currently trying to get HW Transcoding running. I've built my own NAS with the following specs:

 

CPU: Intel Core i3 6100

MB: Asus P10S-i

 

Originally I've installed 6.2 with Bootloader 1.04b and since yesterday I am using 6.2.3-25426 Update 3. 

 

I tried to use HW Transcoding with Plex and the software only used software transcoding. I've looked up the forum and tried to figure a way out .. 

 

As far as I understood it, there needs to be a driver for the iGPU right? And when everything is set up correctly, there should be a folder in etc/dev/ called dri right? 

 

Well there isnt one and I really want to use HW transcoding for my media gallery.

 

 

EDIT: 

cat /usr/syno/etc/codec/activation.conf

 

isnt working either

 

Thanks in advance

 

-Yannik

no devices in /dev/dri, then the i915 driver was not loaded properly (or iGPU is disabled in bios, maybe try to swith vt-d off?)

/var/log/dmesg should have some information about it, either some errors when loading or at least a pci vid/pid for the iGPU device

Device ID: 0x1912

 

 

if present then plex (with plex pass) should work, the codec/license thing is just for synology's own videostation

this would be the links to get synology's software to work
