This is the jellyfish h264 demo on a using the 's VPU.

Using the CPU we take 300% of CPU time, using the VPU instead we take 10% (and even that can be optimized further). Using the VPU also saves ~1.5W of power. Thanks go to the and kernel folks for making this possible!

@agx So this means watching videos will drain less battery?


@iooioio ...yes, and be smoother (for h264 atm)

@agx Awesome! Which changes were required to make this happen? Did both gstreamer and the kernel require patches? And when is this landing for librem5 owners?

Sorry for all the questions. Guess I'm just excited.
