Decode/Encode: OpenMAX I beleive (not sure yet), but this is a right PITA to use. We will supply a media playerc at launch, but no non-OpenMAX access to the encode at this stage.
Documentation is not yet available for OpenMAX stuff - its horrible and may not be done. as its may be replaced with something else.
Thanks - I had a quick look at the OpenMAX site (http://www.khronos.org/openmax/
if anyone else is interested) and I can see how it might be a PITA to use.
Great to hear that you're planning to ship a media player with the launch distro - at least the source from that will give a base to work from on the decode side.
Probably a long shot but do Broadcom offer a reference implementations for VideoCore that they would be happy to share with the community? I know TI have some reference code for common applications of their media accelerators (video conferencing, etc), which they share with registered developers under NDA.
I'm not sure the source of the media player is being released - it's a binary AFAIK. Sorry.
I'm not sure about reference implementations - there are lots of examples that go to customers, but they pay *a lot* for that level of support.
I really don't enough about the licencing and what software is being supplied/intended to add much else. The priority at the moment is to get the HW sorted, once that is done we can concentrate on the software side.
