Accelerated H.264 and HEVC video decoding with Cedrus
#51
As long as the SoC temp in Linux stays below 80 it's fine without heat sink.

Latest update. Running test 1080p video H264 decoding, measured temperature do not go over 44C with heat sink (modified heat sink - cutted to SoC dimension) just layed on top of it, wthout any termal conductive paste.

Please post foto of your colling system. My experiments can be found here: http://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?t...4#pid14694.

now simple do a sudo apt-get install package_name

Those packages are missing in Debian.

I am trying to get this working in VLC but i can't seem to get it right. I have tried mplayer using longsleep's script to run the big buck bunny test video and that worked fine. For VLC i tried to force VDPAU decoding in the preferences(under the codec tab) and nothing seems to be happening. Is there some step i am missing?

A little something. I don't know if this can apply to the Pine64-board, but it sure does work on the CHIP (which also use the Cedar VPU).

hi Captain !  ... exactly !  Take a look at this.

... what is key, the tree NO ONE is barking up right now,  is a browser that fully supports VDPAU.  VDPAU and the Cedrus project are the key, potentially, for video in gnu+linux without proprietary kernel blobs on the PineA64 (IMHO).

Unfortunately, no such browser exists at the moment (for the PineA64) that supports VDPAU.  But this is a conversation (which longsleep has started many times) that needs to be pursued.

Who's responsible for handling this? AllWinner, SBC makers or the true Lunix spirit; communities of all the different flavours of AllWinner based SBCs?

Chrome is a total jackass regarding VDPAU/VA-API acceleration under Linux - they support it under ChromeOS, using all the same libraries and setups - but not under Linux.

Firefox, however, at least has VDPAU/VA-API acceleration through freshplayerplugin, so that should work, in theory.

Flash for arm? Is there such a thing? 
From what I read on chromium's mailing list the real problem is that no one is working on a vdpau solution. 
As always with open-source  you're free to do it yourself  Angel...... Rrrrright
Edit.... the hardware codec support in chromium OS is done by vaapi, it seems, not by vdpau.
