Christian König has added an H.264 encoding interface to the general video code for Gallium3D that will ultimately be leveraged by the RadeonSI Gallium3D driver.

Just days after Christian announced the open-source AMD VCE video encoder code he finally mainlined the OpenMAX state tracker in Mesa.

In a commit this morning, Christian König adds an H.264 encoding interface to the Gallium3D code and the Radeon video code. It's only in effect interface code being added today and not any of the heavy VCE code, but it's a step in the right direction and was added with this Git commit. Hopefully for the Mesa 10.2 release in about three months we will see great support for hardware video encoding with the open-source AMD Radeon Linux driver.
