Playing 4K video

Post by admin »

In order for our software to properly play 4K Real Life Video on your computer it is highly recommended that:
– you have a decent video card (midrange or better) capable of 4K output,
(look at the video card specs to verify)
– that you set “Hardware Video Acceleration” setting in our software to Full. To get to this setting click to “Settings” and then “Performance” buttons. Setting this option tells your computer to use full hardware acceleration if possible.
– our software does not support decoding 4K videos on Windows 7

The ability of the actual GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) to do full hardware video decoding is indicated by the green LED that is visible in the lower left when you click on Video tab inside the VRide software.

If it is blue the GPU can not do full path. If the LED is blue and full hardware decoding is not possible you might still be ok if you have powerful CPU (Core i7 with 4 cores for example).
In this case return “Hardware Video Acceleration” setting back to “Partial“

Also sometimes you have 2 video cards. One is built in Intel Integrated Graphics and another is discrete nVidia or AMD. In this case you should "tell" the system to use nVidia/AMD card instead of one from Intel. To do that you should either disable Intel's adapter in bios/device manager or you can do it in nVidia/AMD control panel that let's you assign what card will be used for particular software.
