is_awesome is a small pyy-based python web application which automatically checks an encode's MediaInfo output for DXVA and Awesome compliance.

Since checking DXVA and the much more strict Awesome compliance involves up to 16 settings, this provides a much faster approach.

Compliance is indicated by either a green or red background for the DXVA and Awesome boxes which indicates compliance or non-compliance, respectively. The errors which were found are listed below along with which standard they apply against. Remember, anything DXVA applies to Awesome too.


A up-to-date version of the master branch is always kept running at for you to use.

You can also POST data and receive a JSON or XML response at or, respectively.

Example JSON response: { "dxva": true, "awesome": false, "error_count": 1, "errors": "

  • Awesome: cabac must be 1. Got: 2
", "warning_count": 0, "warnings": "
    " }

    Example XML response: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

  • Awesome: cabac must be 1. Got: 2
