And what can i do on Windows to check these capabilities?
Btw the GPU is a Gainward 6 Gb nVidia GTX 980 Ti so i think this should
support the above formats.
If I'm not mistaken then yuv444p is linked to 10-bit depth encoding, which is only possible on the newer Pascal cards (the 10x0 series). The Video SDK page only mentions HEVC/H.265, but I believe it also applies to AVC/H.264. See here: https://developer.nvidia.com/nvidia-video-codec-sdk


Try using "high" instead of "high444p" for the profile and "nv12" or "yuv420p" for the pixel format.

If you want best quality for compression then add "-rc vbr_2pass -rc-lookahead 32" to the command line. The encoder cannot actually do two full passes, but it can look ahead up to 32 frames, which acts as a substitute for 2-pass encoding and can improve the picture quality a lot especially around I-frames.

Dear All,

Any idea why this encoding doesn't work?

$ ffmpeg -i perspective.mp4 -c:v h264_nvenc -profile:v high444p
-pixel_format yuv444p -preset default perspective_out.mp4

...
[h264_nvenc @ 0000000001d84640] No free surfaces
Video encoding failed
Conversion failed!

Surfaces are a reference to the memory buffers used by the encoder. You
can find out about which surfaces your graphics card supports by opening
the Nvidia settings panel, -> "VDPAU Information", -> "Surface Limits".

If your card doesn't support the pixel format or the picture exceeds the
surface limit might this already explain why you get this error message.
Although I would expect to see a different error message...

You can also check with "nvidia-smi" which applications are currently
using your graphics card. Suspended processes, zombie processes or just
multiple processes can also exhaust the amount of available surfaces.
