MP3 playback and Video Decoding

Unread post by rsv13 » Wed Aug 12, 2015 3:15 am

Hello experts,

I wanted to know how does Video Decoding happen on 5422 on a XU3? Is it done in Software or Hardware?

If it is done in Hardware? Is there a DSP or something to do that?

Thanks.

It's done on a VPU through MFC.

Does the VPU does Software based Decoding Mp4, avi, aac) Or does it have hardware decoding.
If so, What codecs does the hardware implement?

It is a hardware(hard-wired) decoder.
H.264/H.263 and MPEG4 are available. But we've used only H.264 mostly.
