I’d like to ask if it possible to decode movies using the HW decoder in the VPU on Amlogic chips.
I do have X96Max which comes with s905x3 and the kernel has the staging modules for decoding enabled.
However, I’m not sure how to enable it in the userspace. I assume there need to be some patches for
Has anyone tried before?
Are there any constraints from license point as h264 and HVEC both need to be licensed. Does the HW deal with that - you both a chip that allows that and it’s part of the cost of the device.
