    Hi, could anyone point me to how to use the VCE block? I understand it's over OpenMax, which essentialy limits me to gstreamer, but I for the life of me can't figure out how to use gstreamer with openMax. I'd like to use it for direct encoding from with tvheadend.

    Awesome work AMD guys, really glad to see I "chose correctly"

    I'm really not sure whether I should risk it and buy me an AMD GPU. This is a great move I'ld like to support but I can't be sure when it will be fully functional and what performance it gives. Ofcourse AMD GPU's still are quite warm when in use :/
    Additionally the Windows drivers are still really bad it seems ? and I'm still bound to fire it up once in a time.

    nVidia should not be supported but I think I still will go with them, hopefully the last time.

    How did you arrive at that conclusion? Catalyst will continue improving with both AMDGPU and their blob kernel driver for older cards.
