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!
@agx So this means watching videos will drain less battery?
@iooioio ...yes, and be smoother (for h264 atm)
@iooioio track https://source.puri.sm/Librem5/linux-next/-/merge_requests/328 which will gather the details (or references to those)
