The requirement is to add an image overlay to mp4 Video file. Using Gstreamer pipelines I could add an image overlay on a video and I observed the CPU usage shooting up to 120%. CPU utilization is verified using atop command. Without image overlay CPU utilization was 1%.
I would like to know can we accelerated the same using hardware and whether the same can be done using IPU ?
