Delivery of main goals

Posted by Bootlin (Creator)

This week, we have a special update: we are proud to announce the delivery of the main goals funded by this Kickstarter campaign!

We now have a working demo of Kodi running with our VPU driver on top of a mainline 4.18-rc kernel. Both MPEG2 and H264 are supported, with a fully-optimized pipeline between the VPU and the display side that does not involve any buffer copy or extra transformation that the hardware cannot offload.

Read our blog post at for all the details.
