Would you like help testing and and maturing of this feature? We are happy to
alpha/beta test the hw video OMX plugins. I already have the kernel driver cherry picked
from here: https://android-review.googlesource.com/#/c/kernel/hikey-linaro/+/436596/2
(3 commits) but there is not much I can do with it. With a lot of fiddling around in user space,
I can get the stagefright framework to load the OMX plugins copied from the vendor image of a
Huawei P9, but they don’t communicate correctly with this kernel driver and it gives errors.
I have put in a Linaro support request, (Request #2114) and you can find my contact details
there. For us, the Hikey960 boards are basically paperweights without
hw video acceleration. We would be eager to get going with what we are doing.
I will be running the related CTS tests and other video tests, and will be happy to share the results.
