Hevc_nvenc vs nvenc_hevc

I am getting this error message:

[nvenc_hevc @ 0000000002639e80] This encoder is deprecated, use ‘hevc_nvenc’ instead.

Which profile will enable the correct encoder for the newest Pascal Nvidia cards?

That’s just a naming convention, it doesn’t change the actual encoder. There is only one NVEnc encoder for ffmpeg and it depends upon your NVidia driver for capabilities.


See this thread for details on recommended pascal driver versions.
