Thank you,

this is what I am using. But then mppvideodec and mpph264enc are not enabled.

Have there been any more developments on this?  I've been hoping for hardware encoding on the RK3399 since the Kickstarter.

It took a while, but I managed to compile mpp & gstreamer-rockchip on a fresh version of gstreamer.  The trick on ubuntu was to track down all of the dependencies for gstreamer1.0 and its plugins, install those separately, then do everything from git source.  However, I'm completely new to gstreamer, which seems far more complex than ffmpeg.  Does anyone know how to use streamer for say transcoding to h.264 from an mpeg-2 transport stream?  I'd appreciate any pointers.

I managed to construct a gst-launch-1.0 pipeline to test the mpph264enc plugin to gstreamer, but unfortunately hit a wall.  Perhaps something is wrong in the kernel?  Any suggestions?

This seems to be the critical line:

  1. hal_h264e_api: vcodec type 00000000 can not find H.264 encoder device
Copy the code


Are there any kernel requirements?  This is what I'm running:

  1. mitchekl@firefly:~$ cat /proc/version
  2. Linux version 4.4.16 (firefly@tchip-server) (gcc version 4.9.x-google 20140827 (prerelease) (GCC) ) #20 SMP PREEMPT Sat Mar 18 15:19:16 CST 2017
Copy the code


Thanks!
