Openness of Jetson TX2 hardware encoder

Hi there,

We were wondering on how open and accessible is underlying hardware encoder on Jetson TX2? The lowest level we could find which is open for developers is Multimedia API:

So my questions would be:

  1. Is source code for Multimedia API opensource?
  2. If that is not the case, is it open for NVIDIA partners (like NVIDIA Inception program)?
  3. Is there any other library which provides low level access to the hardware encoder which would enable us more granular optimizations of encoding compared to Multimedia API and GStreamer.

Thank you!


Please install tegra_multimedia_api samples via Jetpack. This is lowest level.

Thanks for the prompt reply. Any comment on my second question? Would Inception program partners be able to access even the lower levels than Multimedia API library?



No. Multimedoa API is the lowest level for forum users and partners.
