      Ah, the mandated black box when the driver is made open source.

        If they could just open-source the firmware... Please AMD!

          Well, the changelog should at least be detailed..... But short of failing to document, I don't see a problem.

            @AMD devs: Since no one seems to have a clue how that's supposed to work: Could you please post the command needed to make use of AMD VCE while using OBS and custom ffmpeg-output or provice a propper plugin for that?

              Closed drivers (on Windows) use the same firmwares too. It's just embedded in the closed driver package.

                It's proprietary hardware. Opensourcing these low-level firmwares is pretty much impossible.

                  Why? They make the hardware, they can do with the software what they want.

                    I'm surprised there wasn't one for Tonga too
