VLC, Codecs and Multimedia
Currently we are still in negotiation with Texas Instruments to
obtain a deal for releasing a few components as GPL. They are
released as binary for now:
* cmemk (out-of-kernel memory manager) and dsplink (DSP interface)
kernel modules. We currently can redistribute this only as
* codec engine (CE). A library to allow applications, in this case
VLC to interface with the DSP).
You find both in the binary-components repository.
In addition there are the DSP codecs themselves. These are binary
only by design and they don't consitute a violation of GPL as they
run on the DSP. These codecs live in the binary-components repo too,
and are installed in /opt/ticel on the device.
Anyways. Let's see if I can get it to play movies today..
