i.MX6, Chromium and hardware acceleration

Hi all,

I need to implement a solution that has Chromium browser and hardware accelerated H264 decoding to receive a stream from VLC in multicast ( rtp ).

Afaik, Chromium uses ffmpeg and I have successfully compiled Chromium with the hardware GPU acceleration ( stolen from Yocto ... ) , but it seems to me the H264 decoder is not used, only the GPU.

In any case, Chromium needs something external to get a multicast stream, and our customer asks for a vlc plugin, but in my understanding the vlc plugin doesn't make use of the hardware decoder present in the i.MX6.

Somebody knows something about this ?
