i currently try to use the gstreamer-plugins (http://github.com/Freescale/gstreamer-imx) with a more recent, mainline kernel (4.1).
As far as i can see the plugins at least rely on the mxc_ipu device, which was registered on the older freescale kernel
(drivers/mxc/ipu_device.c) versions. As the mainline kernel does not contain code for a IPU device node but we need to use
a more recent version of the kernel, i have a few questions on how to proceed:
- are there some patches available for kernel >= 4.1 or the gstreamer-plugins to get the gstreamer work?
- is there another way to en-/decode video data (and overlay) using the hardware accelerated functionality? - and which tools can i use?
Thanks in advance!
