Raspberry Pi Video Decoding

Project Description

The Raspberry Pi has GPU video decoding capabilities. This project involves exposing those capabilities to Fedora video applications, by packaging new components or modifying existing packages, and getting those changes incorporated into either Fedora or the Raspberry Pi Fedora Remix repositories. Expected outcome: It will be possible to play video on the Raspberry Pi using GPU acceleration. Maximum number of students: 1 (possibly more if multiple packages are affected). Resources: Chris Tyler (ctyler)
