gst1-imx: bump to version 0.12.0
Changelog: * vpu: - Completely rewritten plugin code; elements now based on libimxvpuapi instead of libfslvpuwrap - imxvpuenc_h264 inserts SPS/PPS data in front of I/IDR frames - imxvpuenc_mjpeg's quality factor actually has an effect, and is equivalent to the libjpeg's quality factor (it is used in exactly the same way to scale the quantization matrix' coefficients) - the encoder's output buffers no longer have to use DMA memory; they use regular system memory instead - new support in imxvpudec (referred to as "chroma interleaving") for NV12, NV16, NV24 as output formats as an alternative to the I420, Y42B, Y444 formats - removed all of the system frame number tracking code, since it is unnecessary; Instead, the libimxvpuapi's context fields are used to associate input/output frames with GstVideoCodecFrame system frame numbers - fix memory leaks related to missing buffer pool unref'ing * imxv4l2videosrc: - support for crop metadata - element uses the width, height, etc. of the format that the device actually uses during operation (instead of default values) - autofocus control support via GstPhotography - fix incorrect GLib warnings - fix segmentation fault when shutting down the element * eglvivsink: - remove extra g_free() calls, which lead to runtime errors - remove GLESv2 VIVANTE link dependencies - add Android platform - manually retrieve VIV direct texture functions with this and the link dependency elimination, this means that for platforms except the framebuffer one, no Vivante specific headers and libraries are needed anymore - fix blocking issue in the Wayland platform mainloop * improved and expanded documentation * pxp: NV16 *is* supported after all (it was actually a bug in GStreamer pre-1.5.91) NOTE: this does not break compatibility with GStreamer versions older than 1.5.91 * compositor: Update backported aggregator code to GStreamer 1.6 * blitter: - error handling improvements - add missing buffer pool unref'ing, which lead to memory leaks - add missing compositor dependency to blitter base * uniaudio: - only build the uniaudio plugin if at least one codec was found during configuration - disable plugin if the gstaudio library is not available - add AAC profile field to the sink caps with GStreamer >= 1.4.4 to ensure the uniaudio decoder is only used for AAC-LC data * ipu: increase fill frame width from 8 to 64 pixels to make IPU fill operations work with pre-3.14 Freescale kernels * g2d: use padding pixels when setting surface parameters, fixing G2D failures with frame sizes that aren't aligned * wscript: - improve Android support - fix installation paths for the common, blitter, compositor libraries This is based on the Yocto equivalent: https://github.com/Freescale/meta-fsl-arm/commit/cf7a088 However this package now offers a more flexible approach because it can be built without the GPU or VPU elements for devices based on SoCs that lack those features like the new i.MX7. Tested with the following commands on i.MX6Q (IPU): # gst-launch-1.0 playbin uri=file:///root/tears_of_steel_1080p.webm # gst-launch-1.0 filesrc location=/root/tears_of_steel_1080p.webm ! \ matroskademux ! imxvpudec ! imxipuvideosink # gst-launch-1.0 filesrc location=/root/tears_of_steel_1080p.webm ! \ matroskademux ! imxvpudec ! imxeglvivsink Tested with the following commands on i.MX6SX (PXP): # gst-launch-1.0 imxv4l2videosrc device=/dev/video1 ! imxpxpvideosink Signed-off-by: Gary Bisson <gary.bisson@boundarydevices.com> Tested-by: Peter Seiderer <ps.report at gmx.net> Signed-off-by: Thomas Petazzoni <thomas.petazzoni@free-electrons.com>

This is a set of GStreamer 1.0 plugins for plugins for Freescale's
- i.MX6 platforms, with emphasis on video en/decoding using the VPU
- engine.
+ i.MX platforms, which make use of the i.MX multimedia capabilities.
This software supports only the i.MX6 SoC family and requires a
kernel that includes the i.MX6 specific headers to be built.
- The software as a whole is currently in beta stage.
+ The IPU and PXP plugins are always built.
+ The V4L2 plugin is built when BR2_PACKAGE_GST1_PLUGINS_BAD is enabled.
+ The VPU plugin is built when BR2_PACKAGE_LIBIMXVPUAPI is enabled.
+ The EGL plugin is built when BR2_PACKAGE_IMX_GPU_VIV is enabled.
+ The G2D plugin is built when BR2_PACKAGE_IMX_GPU_VIV_G2D is enabled.
+ The MP3 plugin is built when BR2_PACKAGE_LIBFSLCODEC is enabled.
