I've been fiddling around with the amlogic vdec driver with my X92 box (S912 based) with the latest testing version of manjaro.
The reason for this thread is the results top is spitting out.
h.264 sample 720p50 mp2 audio, mpeg TS container gives the following loading:
mpv video.m2t - 250-260%
mpv --hwdec=auto video.m2t - 115-130%
On the positive side, YAY it's working!
But then just coming down to half, still remaining well above a single core?
With VLC I didn't get any success, never seen anything below 185% regardless the video codec input and the video out mode set. Just VLC has less dropped frames and a better A/V sync than mpv.
Maybe domeone has tried other things or maybe some other results?
Interested to hear your experience.
