C Specification

The VkVideoEncodeH264ProfileEXT structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_EXT_video_encode_h264
typedef struct VkVideoEncodeH264ProfileEXT {
    VkStructureType           sType;
    const void*               pNext;
    StdVideoH264ProfileIdc    stdProfileIdc;
} VkVideoEncodeH264ProfileEXT;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

  • pNext is NULL or a pointer to a structure extending this structure.

  • stdProfileIdc is a StdVideoH264ProfileIdc value specifying the H.264 codec profile IDC.


An H.264 encode profile is specified by including a VkVideoEncodeH264ProfileEXT structure in the pNext chain of the VkVideoProfileKHR structure when VkVideoProfileKHR::videoCodecOperation is VK_VIDEO_CODEC_OPERATION_ENCODE_H264_BIT_EXT.

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-VkVideoEncodeH264ProfileEXT-sType-sType
