GStreamer on TI DaVinci and OMAP
Todd Fischer from RidgeRun
New Features ------------ Release 1.00: - Added support for video encoding elements TIVidenc and TIVidenc1. These elements support the DM355, DM6446, DM357, DM367 and OMAP35x devices. - Patches for v4l2src element in the GST good plugin collection - Patch 503 Support decodebin and playbin Fixed Issues ------------ Release 1.00: - Patch 499 Fix memory leak during Fifo flush - Patch 506 Fix data type mismatch int / bool for resizer and autoselect properties in TIDmaiVideoSink - Bug 303 Playback of audio and video increments VmallocUsed - Bug 389 Memory leak in gsttividdec.c and gsttiauddec.c (and probably others) - Bug 707 Decode of mp4 file plays back with skips Known Issues ------------ Release 1.00: - Video encode is not supported on DM6467. DM6467 requires DMAI version at least 1.20.00.06 which is meant to be used with DVSDK 2.00. Official support for video encoding on DM6467 will be added when DVSDK 2.00 is released. For customer that already have DVSDK 2.00 you can upgrade the DMAI version in order to use the video encoder. - If you don't have "gperf" installed on your system, it may manifest as a mysterious run issue with libid3tag involving unresolved symbols. The gperf package that comes with RHEL 4.6 is sufficient, but you need to make sure it is installed. - The JPEG image elements support multiple color spaces. However, not every codec supports every color space. If you specify a color space that is not supported you will get an error message indicating that the plugin failed to create the codec. Check the codec user's guide to determine if your codec supports the color spaces used for the input and output. - If clip size is smaller and dmaivideosink element reports "assertion" then try disabling hw accelerated framecopy. This can be disabled with -c option in scripts. Note: disabling hw accel framecopy will affect performance. - H264 encoded video from TIVidenc works with VLC if it has a file extension of .264. In the 1.00.00 release, it was incorrectly stated there was a problem playing H264 files with VLC.
Updated RELEASE_NOTES.TXT to include listing support for the DM367 and clarifying H.264 encoded works with VLC if you use a filename with a VLC supported file extension.
