I’ve got a few questions regarding usage of the VPU for h.264 Video Encoding on the iMX8.
- What is the recommended way to use the VPU encoder in software, i.e. is there a Linux library that NXP recommends to use?
- Will there be a Gstreamer plugin that supports encoding with the VPU (like there currently is for iMX6?)
Here’s a link to all I could find on the subject: IMX.8 Support Question · Issue #192 · Freescale/gstreamer-imx · GitHub
Looking at the provided image on the iMX8 development board I didn’t see any libraries or drivers installed that currently provide access to the VPU.
