Hello,
Is it maybe possible to accelerate OpenCV with the Videocore4 ?
I wanna know if it is possible, before I look in the released Code (wich isn't that what I'd expect what it is :(( )

Excuse my English, I'm still learning it ;)
Cheers

Unless you aren't able to hack it together with OpenGL ES or
OpenVG you're out of luck. The GPU toolchain is secret and produces bytecode
specifically for the secret Broadcom Videocore Architecture. The foundation would have
to pay a lot to a big chunk of Broadcom engineers to implement this , and thats why it's not
going to happen.
