Branched to a new discussion

We are starting a new product and are investigating the use of the IMX6 Solo processor.  The key element in our product is full HD (1920x1080) video playback, which must be able to be played within QT.  We will also be displaying other elements on the screen at the same time as the video playback.  (Images, Text, etc)  Before proceeding further I'd like to know if anyone in the community can answer the following regarding the IMX6 Solo:


(1)  Has anyone achieved 1920x1080 decoding and playback on the IMX6 Solo?  How was performance?  What type of CPU usage did you see?


(2)  Has anyone achieved 1920x1080 video playback within QT5 on a IMX6 Solo?  (EX-  QML Video Element)  How was performance?  What type of CPU usage did you see?


(3)  If you have successfully achieved either of these items, what build system did you use?  (Yocto, LTIB, etc.)  Do you have any tips on getting this working?


(4)  Has anyone compared decoding/playback of IMX6 Solo to Dual or Quad?  Do the 2X VPUs found in Dual/Quad make a significant difference in decoding/playback of a single video?



Any thoughts/feedback would be much appreciated as we evaluate the IMX6 for our application.
