Does Intel Media SDK runs on Intel Edison ?

Jump to solution

Hi all, I'm trying to use intel Edison board for capturing USB camera and streaming the video in a local network.

until now I used edi-cam project: https://github.com/drejkim/edi-cam GitHub - drejkim/edi-cam: Video streaming on Intel Edison

which use mpeg2 encoder using ffmpeg, I wanted to get same quality with lower bitrate and trying to change my encoder to h264/vp8.

the problem is that at least when using ffmpeg its looks like h264 encoding is too heavy on the processor and I get very low frame-rate.

I thought maybe Intel IPP and(or) Intel Media SDK have accelerated libraries which I can exploit on the edison board to get better performence (I would like to get at least 10FPS ).

Does anyone knows if Intel edison supports IPP or Media SDK ?

and, if anyone have other suggestion to resolve my problem I would appreciate it also.

Thanks

Hello dotan,

As you can see in https://software.intel.com/en-us/media-sdk Intel® Media SDK | Intel® Developer Zone and https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-ipp-81-library-release-notes Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives (Intel® IPP) Library 8.1 Release Notes | Intel® Developer Zone Edison does not meet the requirements needed to run either Intel Media SDK or IPP. So, unfortunately no, Edison does not support them. You might be interested in checking the following links, they might help you in your project:
