We don't have any concrete plans at present. However, we (AMD Embedded
Solutions) recognize the importance of multimedia frameworks like FFmpeg
and Gstreamer as well as open source players like MPlayer, Xine, VLC,
Totem, and so on. Since the release of the XvBA SDK and Tools, I've had
some preliminary discussions with some MPlayer/FFmpeg developers, with
the developer of the XvBA Video backend for VA API, and will be
approaching the other projects shortly. There are a lot of
* adding XvBA support to FFmpeg,
* writing an XvBA plugin for Gstreamer,
* opening up the XvBA Video backend for VA API,
* writing an XvBA backend for VDPAU (if such a thing is possible --
I don't know enough about VDPAU to know but get the
feeling that a VDPAU implementation for UVD would have to be
integrated directly into the Linux Catalyst drivers), or
* adding XvBA support directly to the players.
Right now, I'm researching and evaluating these and am interested in
opinions about their pros/cons and if anyone is interested in
contributing to their implementation.
