From what I managed to find and try out. It seems like there is no hardware acceleration for ffmpeg on Jetpack 4.6.2, only for 5.1 version. Am I wrong?
Also, I found some encoder/decoder samples in JetsonMultimediaAPI that use HW acceleration (NVDEC & NVENC). Does that mean no CUDA is used with that code samples? And if that is the case, would it be faster to allocate buffers on the GPU using CUDA and pass them to NVDEC/NVENC or is it the same as passing buffers from the CPU?
I’m currently on Jetpack 4.6.2 and I would like to use HW acceleration for ffmpeg since I already have encoder/decoder implemented (CPU code) using ffmpeg libs.
What would be an alternative if there is no HW acceleration for ffmpeg on Jetpack 4.6.2?
