Collabora has announced the release of their GStreamer OpenMax IL wrapper plug-in for the GStreamer 1.x multimedia framework.
Open Media Acceleration, a.k.a. OpenMAX, is the royalty-free set of programming interfaces for audio/video/image processing. OpenMAX is maintained by the Khronos Group and provides some similar functionality to video APIs like VDPAU and X-Video for hardware processing.
The new plug-in release by Collabora supports the stable GStreamer 1.x API/ABI with a generic OpenMAX IL implementation as well as special support for the OpenMAX features of the Raspberry Pi.
This release can work while being installed alongside the GStreamer 0.10.x series plug-in and new to this release is also supporting MPEG2 video files with OpenMAX.
