I’m having a serious issue here with Nvidia NVENC not working with my applications, the application being OBS Studio. Everything broke when I updated my packages, I can no longer record or stream using Nvidia NVENC encoder with OBS and I don’t know why it decides to break after an update.
I tried to install the Nvidia SDK which has the Nvidia NVENC stuff because apparently OBS reports the following;
[h264_nvenc @ 0x562a180420c0] Driver does not support the required nvenc API version. Required: 10.0 Found: 9.1 [h264_nvenc @ 0x562a180420c0] The minimum required Nvidia driver for nvenc is (unknown) or newer warning: [NVENC encoder: 'recording_h264'] Failed to open NVENC codec: Function not implemented
this is so annoying, and it’s preventing me from getting stuff done. When I go to try download the NVENC API version 10.0.26, it fails to download and install because it says in the PKGBUILD that you have to manually download the stuff from NVIDIA site because of their licencing stuff because they’ve changed it so you can no longer just download using pacman like usual. – So I did just that after faffing about trying to get that downloaded and installed, but it still doesn’t work.
I don’t know what to even do right now, I don’t want to have to go re-install Manjaro from new again just because one package couldn’t be found when it’s present.
