Speak to Broadcom then. Expect to talk millions of dollars though.

You can hurl (misspelled ) insults, but what he wrote is true. 

Practically everything to do with the lucrative consumer video market is proprietary and fiercely protected under NDA. 

Outfits like MStar will use GPL code, but not let their product manufacturers release the code. 

Documentation is spotty or only available under NDA. 

 

Atmel actually has SAM9 and SAMA5 SoCs that have a Hantro VPU, but like every other GPU/VPU (e.g. Mali, Vivante) it uses a binary blob, and Linux support is restricted to specific kernel versions.

No no don't get me wrong I have no intention to insult anyone. Infact i have respect for all here.I am sorry if it sounded this way.

It can be achieved with Ali mpu effectively. There is also an open source project called open Li.

I presume that English is not your mother tongue as it certainly reads like an insult.

 

OpenPli https://wiki.openpli.org/HomePage runs on standard set top boxes from what I can see, why not use them?

Please don't take it offensive, i didn't mean to offend you honestly. 

Why Linux support is restricted to specific kernel versions? Is it not possible to develop kernels?

I see some solutions from st micro here. http://www.st.com/en/digital-set....

ST is probably not the best choice.
