SubjectRe: [PATCH V2 00/10] media: hantro: imx8mq/imx8mm: Let VPU decoders get controlled by vpu-blk-ctrl
Hi Adam,

The series looks really great.

I believe you should be able to rebase on top of
media_tree master. As far as I can see, it contains the VP9
support you need.

Also, please cherry-pick the following fix from Benjamin

https://patchwork.linuxtv.org/project/linux-media/patch/20211208164418.848790-1-benjamin.gaignard@collabora.com/

This is queued and should land on the master branch very soon.

I imagine the reason H264 and VP9 tests take so long
is some pixelformat conversion somewhere. It would be great
if Fluster could have test vectors ready in the pixelformat
the hardware produces :-)

... in any case, the fact that fluster is passing is already
telling us the driver is in good shape. How many jobs is the above
running in parallel?

If you want to do some other tests, you can build a gstreamer
pipeline, with sync=false, and decode a few 1080p video, e.g.
https://jell.yfish.us/.

Something like gst-launch-1.0 filesrc ! decodebin ! fakevideosink, or
so.

Then, you can run the pipeline in parallel as many times as you want:

gst-launch-1.0 filesrc ! decodebin ! fakevideosink filesrc ! decodebin ! fakevideosink filesrc ! decodebin ! fakevideosink ...

(GStreamer lets you concatenate src ! sink src ! sink, in the same
gst-launch-1.0 invocation).

Looks great.

Thanks,
