ION Feature Upstreaming: Issues that remain
Session information has not yet been published for this event.
One Line Summary
Working towards a common generic display-capable buffer allocation API
One significant pain point for vendors is the deeply platform-specific knowledge required to allocate buffers which will be suitable for any combination of media decode engines, display engines, GPUs, and similar.
Various ideas have been discussed for ION allocator replacement, and some RFC’ed – lets revisit them and see if we’re on the right path, or is there a path-correction required.
Also, discuss the other ION issues that still remain that must be handled for an upstream-worthy solution.
