Carlos Rafael Giani - Feb. 2, 2014, 10:16 p.m.
gstreamer-imx is an ongoing project to write GStreamer 1.0 plugins for
using the i.MX VPU,IPU, and GPU. With the plugins, the VPU en- and decoding
features can be used, the IPU can transform images (deinterlacing,
colorspace conversion etc.), and the GPU can display frames using
OpenGL ES and the Vivante direct textures. Currently, the plugins have
only been tested with the i.MX6 SoC series.

All plugins are based on appropriate GStreamer base classes. Physical
memory metadata structures make it possible to avoid costly frame copies,
making it possible to use transcoding chains that do not involve
CPU copies for example.

This recipe is sent to meta-fsl-arm to make these plugins more visible
and available to others.
