Today, i have found new commit for ffmpeg:


It's Add AML HW decoders

This adds the ffmpeg harware decoders to use the amcodec library on AMLogic devices


Try use it!


Did you try it and make it work?

I tried to build it but nothing shown by ffmpeg -hwaccels. Of course the result is still CPU bound. 

Appreciate if you can share how to make it work, thanks!
