New A10-OLinuXino-LIME image have full HD hardware acceleration


images

First LIME image was done in hurry and there is no hardware acceleration enabled, which dissapointed some of the first LIME owners if you read the comments🙂

As many know recently Linux-Sunxi community successfully reverse engineered CedarX VPU and completely open source drivers for hardware accelerated video playback for A10 was done. The supported formats are just few for now but still something than nothing.

Dimitar made new image with hardware acceleration and here is video in Full HD format H.264 (MP4) playing on LIME:

we need now to do some testing and upgrade the image to our wiki🙂

    Is it possible to enable H.264 encode with the open source drivers? Encoding is extremely useful for low bandwidth video streaming applications..

    I’m asking me: buy an A10 Lime or an A20 Olinuxino if a Mediacenter w. XBMC (esp. FullHD-playback) plus some minor goodies (minor: lirc, wol of server etc.) Could you give me a hint, please, which plattform atm. has the lesser drawbacks? Tia. Boris
