video on SBC4

Postby atthe » Fri Nov 10, 2017 4:42 am


we starting work with SBC4 and we have questions regarding it's video subsystem.
Installed xserver from repository and

Code: Select all

works with 10 fps using all cpu resources at 1024x768 resolution.

What video subsystem is used in SBC4? What special drivers need to be installed? We want to try to play h264 video but not sure if hardware decoding will be supported (otherwise it for sure will not work as supposed).

Thank you.

Hardware h.264 decode for this processor is not yet supported in the mainline kernel. If/when this is available, we will update the kernel.

Better drivers for the graphics core are available with older proprietary drivers in an older kernel release, but we don't support this kernel with the SBC4.
