This is a call out for help from the community.
I have started to update the NvFBC capture code in Looking Glass (http://looking-glass.hostfission.com) and in theory it should be working provided you compile the host application with the NvFBC API SDK. However as it has been pointed out several times in the past, NVidia do not allow consumer cards to use this API (unless you’re Valve or ShadowPlay).
It is known that there is a way to make it work on consumer cards, however as I am bound by the API’s License agreement use of these methods would land me in legal jeopardy and possibly also this project.
I am looking for anyone that would be willing to either donate the card itself or the funds to purchase a NVIDIA Quadro P5000 or better. This is not a cheap card as it’s a “Professional” device coming in at $2900 AUD.
Having this device would allow continued development on the NvFBC capture interface for those that have professional cards, or those using special methods to enable the API on consumer cards (which I can not officially condone).
I have setup a GoFundMe that will cover the cost of this purchase for those that which to donate financially. Any excess that is not used will be held for future purchases for the project should the need arise.
Thank you all for your support!
