US-based Texas Instruments released GStreamer plug-in for developers working with OMAP35x processors and digital media processors based on DaVinci technology.
Embedded Linux developers, through new GStreamer plug-in, can reuse software library to incorporate audio and video playback, audio and video synchronisation and recording capabilities into their designs.
The same plug-in code can be re-used across TI’s OMAP35x, TMS320DM355, TMS320DM644x and TMS320DM6467 processors. The plug- optimises systems to utilise hardware accelerators or the digital signal processor (DSP) for processing-intensive tasks, such as video and audio decodingencoding. This frees the ARM to handle other tasks.
GStreamer plug-in’s pipeline engine allows developers to create custom workflows and omits need to write a new application for each use-case and leverages TI’s eXpressDSP Digital Media (xDM)-based elements for plug-and-play codecs. The open source portal enables users to collaborate development with the community. It enables developers to incorporate their own modules or interface with hundreds of community plug-ins.
