The lime driver of Mali 400 just for graphic rendering, the video playback handles by VPU, not GPU.

The 5.3 version of the Linux kernel was released recently.
Support for Allwinner processors
The support for H264 video decoding, from Maxime Ripard, was finally merged in the cedrus VPU driver that we have developed thanks to the funding of our Kickstarter campaign last year. The last missing piece is H265 video decoding, which we have submitted several times and we hope to get merged soon.
