  • Allwinner VPU Bootlin linux kernel upstream kickstarter

    The guys that submitted lots of DRM patches and stuff for allwinner to Linux kernel are doing a kickstarter to add support for hardware decoding h264, h265 etc and for it to be upstreamed to Linux kernel:

    The campaign is already funded and well into its second stretch goal.
    I wonder why Michael hasn't picked that up yet.

    Bootlin(formerly Free Electrons) is a model citizen for a third party software contractor doing work on the kernel, be it on a contract with a hardware vendor or independent funding like this kickstarter. And the budget involved looks like pocket money for someone like Allwinner...

      The kickstarter has finished now, the h265 playback support stretch goal has been met
      They have posted blog posts on work done over the past few of months:
