I just finished watching an LTT video on the new Intel video cards. To answer your question, no, you won’t be able to use any of Intel’s graphic cards as an encoder in Ubuntu. The reason why not Intel only supports version 6.0 of the Linux kernel, and they have no interest in making them compatible with version 5.0 of the Linux kernel. I don’t stream, so I can’t suggest an AMD or Nividia alternative, but I bet @FurryJackman could. Hey, @FurryJackman, could you give a fellow forum member a hand with his issue?
I find it funny that the 2 heads of the arc project touted linux compatability with the gamers nexus videos, but then its only verson 6 of the kernel. I guess this is me being old but I prefer a well seasoned kernel. Thanks for the info on that @Shadowbane at least I didnt just run out and buy a a380 off the bat
Your welcome, @Brony1984; as I mentioned in my previous post, I just finished watching the video I linked to this post when I found your thread.
Thanks, @FurryJackman, for your two cents. I, and @Brony1984, am thankful for your input. However, I have a quick question, @FurryJackman, do AMD graphic cards have anything like Nividia NVENC? I ask because I am thinking of switching to AMD. After all, while the performance Nividia 4090’s bring to the table is excellent, I can’t justify spending 1,000 dollars for what Nividia will be asking for the lower-performing 4080.
If I have to purchase a new graphics card for my old build, I probably will buy a new Nividia 3080 or 3070. I use Kdenlive and OBS to create my videos, and both programs offload some workflows to the GPU instead of using the CPU.
