How to convert Intel Media SDK NV12 format to rgb565 format

Hi ,

I have decoded my camera  live stream using intel media sdk and its give format NV12. but my renderer application needs RGB565 Format. also I m using hardware acceleration for decoding.

After little research i found we can not convert NV12 to RGB565 directly using VPP. 

Questions : 

1. Can Intel Media SDK decode directly into RGB565 ?

2. If not then how can I convert NV12 to RGB565 ?

Hi Smit,

No we don't support RGB565, you can check the following develop reference at page 11 and 12:

https://github.com/Intel-Media-SDK/MediaSDK/blob/master/doc/mediasdk-man.pdf

You can see we don't support HW accelerated conversion. For work around, you can try to use IPP:

Not quite understand what do you meant, are you going to have a H.264 stream with RGB32 color space?

Hi Smit:

For your previous question, I can see the use case from RGB565 to NV12 because of the camera support, but what is your situation to convert NV12 to RGB565?
