How to enable AMD® VCE encoder in ManyCam 6

AMD® VCE (Video Coding Engine) is a feature in its graphics cards that performs H.264/MPEG-4 AVC video encoding, offloading these compute-intensive tasks from the CPU. ManyCam 6 has widened the range of supported encoding options and now allows utilizing AMD® VCE encoder. This guide will show you how to enable AMD® VCE encoder.
