C Specification

The VkVideoDecodeH264CapabilitiesEXT structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_EXT_video_decode_h264
typedef struct VkVideoDecodeH264CapabilitiesEXT {
    VkStructureType         sType;
    void*                   pNext;
    StdVideoH264LevelIdc    maxLevelIdc;
    VkOffset2D              fieldOffsetGranularity;
} VkVideoDecodeH264CapabilitiesEXT;


When using vkGetPhysicalDeviceVideoCapabilitiesKHR to query the capabilities for the input pVideoProfile with videoCodecOperation specified as VK_VIDEO_CODEC_OPERATION_DECODE_H264_BIT_EXT, a VkVideoDecodeH264CapabilitiesEXT structure must be chained to VkVideoCapabilitiesKHR to get this H.264 decode profile specific capabilities.


  • sType is the type of this structure.

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

  • maxLevel is the maximum H.264 level supported by the device.

  • fieldOffsetGranularity - if Interlaced Video Content is supported, the maximum field offset granularity supported for the picture resource.

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-VkVideoDecodeH264CapabilitiesEXT-sType-sType
