Regarding encode decode operations

Question asked by Shilpa C on Jun 8, 2014
Latest reply on Jun 9, 2014 by igorpadykov

Hi,

 

I am facing issues(Physical memory and framebuffer memory allocation failures) while executing a specific combination of encode and decode operation.

 

I request your inputs on what is the reason behind the  failures and guide us on how to resolve these.

 

Set up details and Observations given below.
