FFMPEG+GPU Support on TK-1?

Is FFMPEG with GPU acceleration supported on TK-1? If not, what other decoder can be used?

This is for a customer who is moving an NPR software to TK-1. On desktop, he used FFMPEG with GPU acceleration, but couldn’t find the same on TK-1.


Hi Sasi,
FFMPEG with GPU acceleration is not supported in Tegra series. On TK1, please use gstreamer frameworks to leverage HW codecs.

Thank you. I will ask the customer to post their queries on the forum if any.

Does gstreamer provides development API (supporting TK1) using which we can use HW codecs in our application on TK1 board?

Hi techbull,
No, on TK1, we support HW codecs in gstreamer frameworks only.
