Release notes for gst-openmax 0.10.1

This is the first stable release of gst-openmax, a GStreamer plug-in that allows communication with OpenMAX IL components.

OpenMAX IL is an industry standard that provides an abstraction layer for computer graphics, video, and sound routines. It has been pushed specially by key industry leaders in embedded systems.

gst-openmax has been tested in multiple OpenMAX IL implementations, such as Bellagio, and Texas Instrument's OMAP. Depending on the implementation some changes might be needed, but ideally it should work straight out-of-the-box. If you find that some changes are needed, please contribute the changes back.

This is the result of over three years of development and 5 pre-releases that have been widely tested, and deployed on products like the Nokia N900.

Elements supported:

  • MPEG-4 encoder/decoder
  • H.263 encoder/decoder
  • H.264 encoder/decoder
  • WMV decoder
  • Vorbis decoder
  • MP3 decoder
  • Volume filter
Experimental elements:
  • AMR-NB encoder/decoder
  • AMR-WB encoder/decoder
  • AAC encoder/decoder
  • MP2 decoder
  • ADPCM encoder/decoder
  • G.711 encoder/decoder
  • G.729 encoder/decoder
  • iLBC encoder/decoder
  • JPEG encoder
  • video renderer
  • file reader

Compared to previous pre-releases, this version now features a configuration mechanism, so you can select pretty much every combination of GStreamer elements you might need, and specify the OpenMAX IL library, component name, role, and even your desired rank. Also, the code-style has been updated to GStreamer guidelines.
