Finally got a chance to upload. Been doing some researching and seeing other posts on the internet where QSV doesn’t work all the time (or at all) with my CPU (4770k). And I can honestly say I’m not sure how often I fell back to CPU before upgrading to 2.4.8. I tried to uninstall the device for the Intel 4600 as well as removing the driver so I can attempt to put one of the older drivers that is recommended in the FAQ, but W10 just reinstalls the new driver upon reboot…and though it will let me try and install the older driver I notice nothing really changes so it appears I’m stuck on the newest Intel driver.
I read on the handbrake site of others with the same issue as me, and one guy said he rolled back to handbrake 0.10.5 and that seems to work for his 4770k so I’m trying that next (EDIT–cancel that. 0.10.5 CLI does not have the command “–enable–qsv-decoding”). I do have a Nvidia 1080 video card, thinking it might be worth it to figure out how to enable processing with that…never done anything with CUDA.
Anyway, thanks for your help. If the files I uploaded help in anyway let me know. It’s about 50/50 whether I can complete a QSV encode.
