Re: VLC's support for OpenMAX

Fri Feb 24, 2012 1:12 pm

VLC seems to support OpenMAX IL for doing some decoding stuff:

Did anyone of the devs/beta-board-users test this? May I kindly ask if someone (who has some piece of raspberry hardware) wants to try it out?

Would maybe be more user-friendly for people not used to a command-line only video player.

I'd like to use the Pi (amongst other things) as a media device, so anything that helps decode MPEG2 is a bonus. I guess that whilst there's a chance that the CPU could decode SD MPEG2 anyway, any kind of help is a bonus.

I realise its a big if, but does anyone know if VLC works in this manner, will it be portable to other programs (such as XMBC)?

By now I do have a Rasberry Pi and Gentoo is running on it (hardfp by the way :). The demos using OpenMAX (hello_world, hello_audio, hello_video and hello_triangle) all do work fine (a big thank you to Hexxeh here).
Now it might take quite a while until I have xorg-x11 and vlc compiled on the Pi (and by the Pi) and then I can post my own results here.

Okay, I got VLC compiled but it doesn't seem to be willing to use OpenMAX w/o applying force:

Let's see how fast they react :)

Hi.

I have posted an answer on the VLC forum :

I don't know if this will fix the problem but I will try this soon on my Raspberry Pi !

So, if there is any solution to make vlc work with OpenMax, I think it's good idea to place OpenMax-enabled .deb in raspbian repository
