MPEG-2 Encoder for i.MX53 utilising the VPU

Hi, Has anyone come across an MPEG-2 encoder that uses the VPU on the i.MX53? The datasheet (IMX53IEC, Page 15, Note 1) states that 70% of MPEG-2 encoding is performed in hardware, however there is no MPEG-2 encoder in the Multimedia Codec package. I've contacted Freescale and they suggested that we contact "third party suppliers", but didn't say who specifically to contact. Freescale's other suggestion was to write the MPEG-2 encoder for the VPU ourselves. Has anyone managed to do this? Regards, Leon Craven

Every mention of MPEG2 encode is a misprint... the VPU can decode MPEG2.

After further talks with Freescale, I've found out that the VPU has no MPEG2 encode capability. Every mention of MPEG2 in the datasheets are misprints.
