Using Gstreamer Plugins with Kernel >= v4.1

i currently try to use the gstreamer-plugins ( 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!
