USB camera and VPU on iMX6

Question asked by benhenricksen on Jul 15, 2015

Can the VPU be employed to encode the YUV or RGB data (to H264) from a USB camera? Is there a path for it?

Or would it be a case of receiving the data over USB, putting it into system memory and then running the VPU on it?

Or would software encoding be the only way? If so, what sort of performance could you get from a Quad iMX6?

Any info gratefully received.
