Description sreerenj 2015-10-19 11:43:39 UTC
This is to request for a new project named LibVA SDK, which will be a an SDK based on Intel's VA-API. This project will include a parsing layer (libvapl), codec layer(libvacl) and a utility layer (libvaul).

The SDK will include the library for dealing with the Hardware Accelerated video Decoding, Encoding, Post Processing and Rendering. Basically this is a "VA-API middleware" which will be useful other major media projects  like gstreamer, ffmpeg etc.
The base code will be deriving from

--Project Name: "LibVA SDK"

--Preferred git repository name: libva-sdk

--Project Description: 
LibVA SDK is a suite of libraries that rely on VA-API (libVA) to expose hardware accelerated decoding, encoding and video processing to applications.

--Who should be able to approve members to project: Sreerenj Balachandran
(fdo acc name: sree)

-- Need bugzilla: Yes

Component_1: libvapl (LibVA Parser Layer)
Set of bitstream parsers, that readily exist as GStreamer codecparsers (gst-plugins-bad), but without any dependency onto GLib or GStreamer libraries.
Default Assignee: bsreerenj@gmail.com, gb.devel@gmail.com 

Component_2: libvacl (LibVA Codec Layer)
Set of decoders, encoders and video filters that exclusively use LibVA (VA-API) and the hardware.
Default Assignee: bsreerenj@gmail.com, gb.devel@gmail.com 

Component_3: libvaul (LibVA Utility Layer)
Utility functions that exclusively use LibVA for repetitive usages. i.e. baseline building blocks
