Account request to submit TI DaVinci device support
Last modified: 2008-08-14 21:03:27 UTC
There are some folks that have done some work for several plug-ins to work with TI's Codec Engine and an overall port to TI's DaVinci processors. They'd like to publish the work and I'm trying to help them make it suitable for pushing it upstream. I don't want them to fork the code unnecessarily.
I'll try to be on #gstreamer as 'jkridner' if you'd like to discuss.
Preferred account name: jkridner
Real name and e-mail were used to file the bug.

Can anyone confirm this request?
It's about GStreamer: I assume Thomas will get around to it eventually.

I hope so. In the meantime, the code has been released at http://focus.ti.com/dsp/docs/dspsplash.tsp?contentId=3100.
Ping Thomas@apestaart.org - do you confirm this request?
Thomas Vander Stichele <firstname.lastname@example.org> - ping
Timeout lack of response - Please reopen if you can get Thomas to reply.
do you have any previous patches as an example ? Or an outline of what you are planning to do ? We usually expect people to show some level of contribution before giving them a CVS account.
reopening because Thomas has been located
Ping - Jason do you have a comment on this?
The original port of GStreamer to DaVinci is here:
We sought to find a 3rd party maintainer and they provided this:
Development has continued internal to TI, and there is a small following on:
We are planning to do several things to improve the state of our license agreements, including providing the user-space ARM components under a GPL-compatible license (not GPL), kernel-space ARM components under the GPL license, a free DSP compiler, binaries for loading DSP objects, no-cost DSP codec binaries for select codecs, and supporting community development of open source codecs on the DSP.
Low-cost access to an open platform will be provided by the Neuros OSD2:
They chose, however, to focus first on VLC, rather than GStreamer:
There is also on-going work on OMAP3 and a demo of GStreamer on the OMAP3 BeagleBoard. We'll also move towards opening that up.
Certainly seems a worthy cause. Your account has now been created, please just run your first few patches past the gstreamer mailing list before committing. Sorry it's taken so long to set this up.
Any issues, please let me know.
