i.MX8 Linux video decode support

I am curious over what support, if any, there is for hardware accelerated video decoding in Linux on i.MX8 ?


According to i.MX8 reference manual there seems to be only v4l2 capture support, i.e. camera stream but not for decoding video frames. Some googling doesn't actually reveal any Linux support on i.MX8 though Gstreamer has support for Hantro g1/g2. Don't know if that would suffice !!


Can anybody give me some info on what the status and future support is for video decoding with Hantro g1/g2 on i.MX8 is/will be ? will it have v4l2 implementation as in i.MX6 ?
