Another ARM Video Decoder Being Reverse-Engineered
Phoronix: Another ARM Video Decoder Being Reverse-Engineered
While the binary wall has yet to fall with ARM SoC vendors in terms of providing open-source drivers -- namely when it comes to the graphics / multimedia blocks -- there's many active community projects for reverse-engineering these ARM blocks to provide open-source support. Here's another project that's being done for cracking the video decoder on a popular Chinese ARM SoC...
Where can you ACTUALLY buy a device with this?
I've seen this chip/SoC show up nearly every time the Rasberry Pi is mentioned, but it never seems to be available or easily purchaseable. Does anyone have a link?
