And what are You thinking about eglSwapBuffers not DRI2SwapBuffers

I do not understand you. If you talking about eglSwapBuffers not calling DRI2SwapBuffers, then answer is simple: libMali is multithreaded driver and eglSwapBuffers sends some message (maybe, through X11 protocol, IDK) and another thread catches it and calls __egl_platform_swap_buffers, which, in turn, calls DRI2SwapBuffers

Have you Cedarx working??
Published in 2015-11-10 18:20:14 | Show all floors

Yeah, but CedarX is library not "Processing Unit" (not VPU).

So, If Android use VPU (what is the name of this VPU - @fritz suggest that is not Mali) ?
and what kind of library (cedarx?) is used in Android for hardware video acceleration ?

So CedarX is the HW engine inside the SoC, that handles all the decoding. Now question is... How does this work on android ?

Does it use OMX (so every app can use it) or does it still rely on some glue code ?
