Updated FFMpeg with mppโ€‹

They have some exciting news to share! They've recently re-written FFmpeg and it's now available on GitHub. They're looking for testers to try it out and would appreciate any form of testing.

The new FFmpeg version supports hardware encoders with output scaling for H264, HEVC/H265, and VP8, along with hardware decoders for H263, H264, HEVC/H265, AV1, VP8, VP9, MPEG1, MPEG2, and MPEG4.

If you're interested in helping them out, you can provide a test report at GitHub. They also mention that this new version should theoretically work on other Rockchip SoCs, although they don't have access to test it themselves.

Your assistance in testing and providing feedback would be greatly appreciated. Check out the link and be a part of this exciting project!

Radxa's Rock 5A one step closer to U-boot mainlineโ€‹

They mentioned working on the Rock 5A board to get it accepted into mainline U-boot, and version 4 of the patch is already posted for review. Once it's available in mainline, anyone can contribute by testing, fixing bugs, submitting patches, or adding new features, as it's free and open source. It's an exciting opportunity for community involvement!

Object detection with NPU - h264 streams - h264 camera - rtspโ€‹

They mentioned optimizing and enhancing the code to process 4 streams of h264 1080p video on NPU, successfully detecting objects and scaling it down for display. The code runs smoothly in wayland/weston, keeping the CPU at low frequency and temperature.

In their object detection results, they've assigned specific colors for different objects such as green for cars, red for people, yellow for bicycles, pink for buses, white for umbrellas, and blueish for motorcycles. Anything else is represented by blue or has a blue tint. Impressive work!
