If you think the RPi GPU is "secret" you clearly have never worked with SoC's containing Realtek® GPU's.

In that case, a simpler application will do the job without gaps, providing your source videos are in .h264 form, or if mpeg4 you can quickly convert them on your RPi via something like gpac. The app's source code is on your Raspbian µSD card in: /opt/vc/src/hello_pi/hello_video/ You'll need to buil...

Hello Hermann. I don't use the usual linux grabbing tools, as they are usually unaware of openmax, & mmal, so I don't know about the virtual stuff you mention.
