Earlier this month AMD released a free GPU accelerated video transcoding application for its ATI graphics cards but many users are having lots of issues with this program. PC Perspective had a Q&A with Jay Marsden from AMD regarding these issues, check it out over here.
Q: When will the stability and quality of the ATI Video Converter improve in a new release?
A: We have a defined roadmap for the application and plan to add new baseline functionality, ease-of-use and stability in coming versions. We are evaluating now when we can most quickly offer those improvements, and will update you as soon as we have more information.
Q: Why did AMD release such a buggy software application into the market?
A: The ATI Video Converter is a basic utility that introduces users of Catalyst to the capabilities of Stream processing on 32-bit operating systems. While it isn’t perfect, The level of functionality and quality is appropriate for maximizing the conversion speed on the most widely used video formats. Improvements are already being made and users can expect to have a much higher quality experience with future revisions.
