Hw accl supported ffmpeg in Raspbian repo

Wed Jan 03, 2018 5:42 pm

Hello,
I have created a patch for ffmpeg package to enable HW accl video decoding and encoding on Raspberry Pi.
which is here ...
https://gist.github.com/ksharindam/a17a ... 6c36e4e465
I want to add this patch in the repo.
How can I send this patch to Raspbian maintainers (especially ShiftPlusOne)?

It has always been the policy of raspbian,org not to include RPi specific package versions. They are usually added by the Foundation repository.
Minimal Kiosk Browser (kweb)
Slim, fast webkit browser with support for audio+video+playlists+youtube+pdf+download
Optional fullscreen kiosk mode and command interface for embedded applications
Includes omxplayerGUI, an X front end for omxplayer

Thanks cjan
I do not often use ffmpeg but it is good to know how to convert video.webm files into a format that omxplayer can use. Remember, a journey of a hundred miles begins with a single step.
