[BUG] DisableEncoderReordering disables hardware encoding

Hi all,

I just transitioned to a new Plex Server and moved my profile file over for MCEBuddy.

It seems like it’s detecting the NVidia card, but it’s not using it. Any thoughts?

Thanks! Will.

This is the setting in the profile which is causing to skip hardware encoding

INFORMATION> --> User has forced no reordering of encoder tools, skipping hardware optimization encoder reordering (DisableEncoderReordering=true)

I need to dig deeper into this. It shouldn’t skip hardware encoding, it should only skip reordering.

Makes sense - I manually changed the order so ffmpeg is first now - works great now.

Interestingly enough, the performance of the rtx 2060 super is nearly identical to the performance of the rtx 2060.

Thanks! Will.

Thanks for reporting this, it’s been fixed in today’s 2.5.5 BETA build. It was accidentally disabling hardware encoding while skipping re-ordering.
