Re: Techniques to use GPU for Decoding

Can someone provide the command line required to use the on-board GPU acceleration for H.264 decoding?

Thanks

I don't think there is a command line that's covering it all for decoding. Think that something like ffmpeg will be capable of using the GPU to accelerate the decoding/encoding process via a library. There are some threads in this forum about the GPU, but as of yet there isn't anything clear yet about it.

Basically the answer to your question will be something with ffmpeg (or a similar tool), but afaik it isn't done yet.
