Decoding h.264 in SOC´s without VPU

The i.MX6UL and i.MX7D do not have VPU, so we use GStreamer plugins to decode videos that can apply to these SoC´s. The following steps are necessary to get H.264 installed on MX6ULEVK and MX7DSABRESD boards with yocto image on it.

Packages and Licenses:

Add in your <build-dir>/conf/local.conf file:

CORE_IMAGE_EXTRA_INSTALL += "gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly-meta packagegroup-fsl-gstreamer1.0-commercial gst-ffmpeg"


CORE_IMAGE_EXTRA_INSTALL += "gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly"


Open your favorite text editor and copy the text below into a new text file:

PACKAGECONFIG_mx7d = "x264"

PACKAGECONFIG_mx6ul = "x264"

Save the file as gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly_%.bbappend and put it in <build-dir>/sources/meta-fsl-arm/recipes-multimedia/gstreamer/.

Now, just run a bitbake to get the packages installed on the desired image. and you will able to see videos in h264 form with your mx6ul and mx7d
