Using An OpenCL Kernel In GStreamer
There's now a GStreamer plug-in to utilize OpenCL within this popular Linux video framework so that an OpenCL kernel can be applied against a video stream.
Fabian Deutsch wrote the OpenCL support for GStreamer and has made it available as gst-plugins-cl. This support allows for an OpenCL kernel to be run against a video stream in the GStreamer pipeline. This support could allow for video filters to be applied while all of the work is being done by an OpenCL-supportive GPU, among other potential use-cases.
What also makes it a bit more interesting is that this OpenCL support was written in Vala.
