I’m new here. I’ve found a very interesting presentation of CUDA (http://developer.download.nvidia.com/presentations/2008/NVISION/NVISION08_ImageVideoCUDA_web.pdf). There is description of the library NVCUVID, which should be able to use hardware acceleration for e.g. h.264 etc. It should be platform independent.
You can download the API and the API document here (http://www.nvidia.com/content/cudazone/cuda_sdk/Video_Decode_x64.htm), but the limitation of this one is, that this only works with Windows and CUDA 2.0.
Do You know, if there exists an other version of NVCUVID that works together with linux ?
Or did everybody knows if there is an routemap for porting this API to linux ?
Or exists something else to use this hardware acceleration with linux ?
