compute module 3+ H264 decode max /recommended bitrate

Hi all, quick question about the compute Module 3+ I am trying to find the detailed spec for the H264 decode. I was explained in another thread about the video size & FPS spec, but I cannot find the recommended / max bitrate for the decoder let's say for a RTSP stream. I read some non-official post ...

Re: Future module Based on bcm2711: Question about H264 decoding spec

jamesh/trejan, Many Thanks to both of you for your clarifications !! Jamesh: It's the same H264 block, so performance is the same per clock. Of course, the clocks can be faster on the Pi4, so there is a bit of extra performance, but resolution limits stay the same. trejan: The h264 block core defaul...

Re: Future module Based on bcm2711: Question about H264 decoding spec

So many HW devices discard H264 4KP60 decode in favor of H265 decode. For the Pi 4, it is more that the H.264 codec is the same one from before so has the existing limitations. A new 4K capable H.265 decoder was added. If I read correctly (or maybe there is a typo on element14 spec): The H264 specs...

That would be an intersting "off topic" discussion.

Re: Official Raspberry Pi 4 Case (screw spec ?)

Finally,

I ended up creating a weak rivet by driving a screw from a servo kit in the hollow of the two post opposite of the ports side. The port side is held in place by the connectors.

Thank you for your suggestions.!!

Re: Official Raspberry Pi 4 Case (screw spec ?)

It's not designed to need screws. You'd have to drill out the posts the PCB mounts on. The holes in the PCB are designed for a 2.5M machine screw. Thx, I was hoping to avoid any "customization" work, using tiny screws for plastic to secure the PI board into the posts. If I need to take the drill ou...
