Video Decoding using VA-API Hardware Acceleration



I have a intel atom d2500 board. We have developed a linux player for video playback. But the videos are not playing it smoothly, I checked using M-player with vaapi support and the performance was very good. So, I want to implement VA-API video decoding in to it so how can I do that. I checked the xbmc source code but not able to understand do you have sample code for video decoding using VA-API for any format of video. I have already seen the one example at following link

but can you give more general example which will applicable to any kind of video format.

Thanks and Regards,

Hi Ganesh, Linux and libVA API is currently not supported by Media SDK. Unfortunately, the team working on the Media SDK product does not have any samples or documentation regarding libVA. I suggest looking elsewhere for further details on this subject. Maybe the libVA forms or the person that wrote the paper you refer to can give some guidance. Regards, Petter
