This is the jellyfish h264 demo on a #librem5 using the #imx8mq's #hantro 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 #gstreamer and #linux kernel folks for making this possible!
@iooioio track https://source.puri.sm/Librem5/linux-next/-/merge_requests/328 which will gather the details (or references to those)

@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.
