How to use mxc_vpu_test for transcoding

I am using mxc_vpu_test from FSL Yocto 3.10.17 with a i.MX6Q device. I can do both encode and decode correctly using "-E" and "-D" options correctly.


However, the transcoder function (-T)  seems not easy to use. Is there a working sample cmd line to transcode an input .mp4 file to a .264 output file using "-T" option of the mxc_vpu_test program?


Below is my usage on a headless i.MX6Q device, it doesn't work:

yf@imx6x-std:~/test$ ./mxc_vpu_test.out -T "-i akiyo.mp4  -o /tmp/akiyo.264"

Guess my usage is incorrect for "-T" option. The Encoder open failure "-3" means invalid parameter but I don't know where the problem is according to the command line help.
