Miracast source for i.MX6?

We are using a Phytec board with NXP i.MX6 running embedded Linux:

The board also has an Atheros AR9462 WIFI chip, and we are configuring it as a WIFI router/AP.

 

We would like to try running Miracast source on the same chip, in a Linux container. One implementation could be the user connecting to the system via a web site, selecting a URL, and the WIFI router will then use Miracast to display the streaming video to a (separate) Miracast sink.

 

I noticed on one post from a couple of years ago that someone said NXP only supports Miracast sink, not source:

But another post from a year ago talks about issues with Miracast source:

So my questions are:

 

  1. Does NXP provide a Miracast source software for the i.MX6?
  2. If yes, where can I download it from?
  3. If not, can someone recommend another vendor or open source implementation other than Miraclecast? (We will be looking at Miraclecast, but there seem to be some issues with that.)

 

Thanks,

Aram
