Texas Instruments provides DSP algorithms for the OMAP 3 platform used in a number of devices like BeagleBoard and N900.
The gst-dsp project aims to provide GStreamer elements to take advantage of those algorithms. The list includes video/image decoders and encoders.
Unlike other similar projects there are no dependencies (no openmax, no libdspbridge).
The features include:
- video decoding (MPEG-4, H.263, H.264)
- video encoding (MPEG-4, H.263)
- image encoding (JPEG)
Follow carefully the DSP howto, and ensure that the [[BeagleBoard/DSP_Howto#v3.09|TI's DSP binaries are properly installed.
Install GStreamer for your board.
If your cross compilation environment doesn't provide it, you can follow this generic recipe: How to compile for embedded.
Then, using your preferred cross compilation environment, checkout and compile the project.
git clone git://github.com/felipec/gst-dsp.git cd gst-dsp make make install DESTDIR=/media/rootfs
In order to display the video playback through the DVI interface, you should also install gst-omapfb.
