I am working with Intel UpBoard that has an Intel Atom CPU, and want to stream a video from a usb camera to a live stream service. Therefore I am running a h264 encoder that uses h264_qsv codec, which apparently cannot be found for this kind of processor. Tried also with libx264, but with this the CPU utilization is too high which makes it impossible to work.

What can i do in order to accelerated encoding using FFmpeg on Intel Atom based platform? Are there any other codecs I can try?

Thank you very much in advance! :)


This CPU does not include the quicksync encoding primitives. It literally does not have the circuitry for hardware acceleration.
