Accessing H.264 Encoder on HDVICP2 Using Codec Engine
I'm working on DM816x EVM and using EZSDK 5.05.01.04.
I want to use H.264 encoder not by OMX but by Codec Engine.
In document "component-sources/omx_05_02_00_30/src/ti/omx/docs/H264_Encoder_HDVICP2_UserGuide.pdf",H.264 encoder is implemented based on XDAIS/XDM.
Definitions related XDM (VIDENC2) can be found in "component-sources/omx_05_02_00_30/src/ti/omx/interfaces/openMaxv11/ih264enc.h".
But I cannot find released packages (ti.sdo.codecs.h264enc, ti.sdo.codecs.h264enc.ce) related to this codec.
In the prebuilt HDVICP2 firmware binary, I can find strings like "CERuntime_Init", "Engine_open", "VIDENC2_process", ...So I guess that the distributed HDVICP2 firmware is accessed by Codec Engine.
Can I make Codec Engine in my application without packages like ti.sdo.codecs.h264enc, ti.sdo.codecs.h264enc.ce?
Some of my config is like below.
var osalGlobal = xdc.useModule('ti.sdo.ce.osal.Global');osalGlobal.runtimeEnv = osalGlobal.DSPLINK_LINUX;var Engine = xdc.useModule('ti.sdo.ce.Engine');xdc.useModule('ti.sdo.ce.video2.IVIDENC2');
And during initialzation, try to open Engine like this way.
.. engErr = Engine_addStubFxns("VIDENC2_STUBS", (IALG_Fxns*)&VIDENC2_STUBS); Engine_initDesc(&engDesc); engDesc.name = ENGINENAME; engDesc.memMap = NULL; engDesc.useExtLoader = FALSE; engDesc.remoteName = "dm816x_hdvicp.xem3"; engErr = Engine_add(&engDesc); Engine_initAttrs(&engAttrs); engAttrs.procId = "VIDEO-M3"; hCE = Engine_open(ENGINENAME, &engAttrs, &engErr);...
The function Engine_open() returns NULL with error code 3 (EDSPLOAD).
No memory map is changed, and the firmware and application is in the same directory.
1. Can I get the H.264 Encoder packages (with or without source)?
2. Modules in the prebuilt firmware can be accessed by Codec Engine?
3. If possible, how the configuration and code should be changed?
HDVICP2 firmware/M3 multimedia is given as a binary only. You need to use the OMX APIs on the host processor to use it. Direct use of codec engine is not possible. What is the reason for using CE directly rather than the OMX interface which is given to you ?
I want use the "Region of Interest Encoding" feature of H.264 Encoder 2.0.
I can set the "enableROI" field of IH264ENC_DynamicParams to 1 by OMX API OMX_SetParameter() in the initialzation stage.But I cannot find the way how to set fileds of IH264ENC_RoiInput of IH264ENC_InArgs by OMX API.
I thought that the IH264ENC_InArgs can be accessed by codec engine, since it is defined as a extension of IVIDENC2_InArgs.
How can I pass the IH264ENC_RoiInput to HDVICP2 using OMX?
ROI feature is not integrated in SDK, you may not be able to use it..
