Hardware colorspace conversion

Hi,

Using SabreSD with i.MX6Q and Linux 4.0.0 SDK.

I know that there is hardware on the IPU for hardware colorspace conversion because there is a gstreamer component for it in libmfw_gst_ipu_csc.so.  I was wondering what libraries provide support for access to this hw colorspace conversion. 

 

Do openGL and directfb that are provided with the SDK give access to hw colorspace conversion?

I am trying to improve performance of mplayer for software decoding of intra-refresh h.264 streams.  Right now colorspace conversion is in software and I'd like to do this in hardware for better video playback performance.

 

Thanks.
