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: https://docs.nvidia.com/jetson/l4t-multimedia/index.html.
So my questions would be:
- Is source code for Multimedia API opensource?
- If that is not the case, is it open for NVIDIA partners (like NVIDIA Inception program)?
- 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.
