Intel NUC i7 Skull Canyon Skylake (I7-6770HQ) and GStreamer-MSDK on Ubuntu

I am about to purchase an Intel NUC i7 Skull Canyon Skylake (I7-6770HQ) for the purpose of decode an display two live HD video streams (RTP/UDP) with low latency.

I want to install Ubuntu and the GStreamer-MSDK on the device to be able to explit the hardware mfx decoding capabilities. 

Can somebody please confirm that it is possible to build and use GStreamer-MSDK in this device ?

Hello IJoha3,

 

Thank you for posting on this Intel Community.

 

Intel has not validated Linux* on Intel® NUC products. However, Intel® NUC owners have reported Linux* distros as compatible and are successfully running different distributions.

 

Check the Intel® Product Compatibility Tool for more information: Intel® NUC Kit NUC6i7KYK

 

We also recommend checking the Linux* distro's website and forums for peer assistance:

 

1. https://askubuntu.com/

2. https://ubuntuforums.org/

3. Linux* Operating System Vendor Websites

 

Hopefully, other peers on this Intel® Community may share their experience with this setup.
