Intel's Newer Drivers affecting some video softwares

So some VEGAS PRO and Handbrake users have reported issues with their softwares no longer producing QSV renders.

One kind user from the VEGAS forums sifted through the Intel forum complaints and found the culprit. I'm not sure how affected Hitfilm is, since I'm aware its a GPU centric application, but just for everyone's information., I'm sharing it. It's verified.

Hello everyone,

Thank you for your patience on this one. After checking in with our devs it was determined that the affected applications need to be rebuild using an updated Intel® Media SDK. I know this is not the easiest approach but with the massive shift to DCH some portions of the driver code cannot work the same anymore. We won't be making DCH drivers backwards compatible so our recommendation is to wait for the affected applications to get updated (per example just like Handbrake 1.2.2 did).

Best Regards,
