Re: Raspberry pi3 and h264_mmal

I have been trying to max out this RPI3. I have found out that I was probably already using libturbojpeg. I was able to build a libturbojpeg 1.5.1 package and it resulted in the following debs: ii libjpeg-dev 1:1.5.1-12 all Development files for the JPEG library [dummy package] ii libjpeg-turbo-prog...

Re: Raspberry pi3 and h264_mmal

Was able to compile the latest source from 5-12-17 with neon optimizations. I added the h264_mmal line as well. I redid the cpu testing for the original unmodified zoneminder and ffmpeg from the repo using pidstat cause the numbers were jumping around a bit for the neon optimized version. I think al...

Re: Raspberry pi3 and h264_mmal

I'm really new to this. What is the procedure to download the source from git with the neon optimizations? I have just been downloading the latest source and then downloading each modifed file. I was able to build a package again, just incorporating the latest change to zm_image.cpp. I will run it f...

Re: Raspberry pi3 and h264_mmal

I realized the latest source did not have the neon optimizations. I downloaded the modified files and was able to successfully build a package. However, it does not run. I am getting these errors in the log: zmc_m4[16777]: PNC [Delta grayscale function failed self-test: Results differ from the expec...

Re: Raspberry pi3 and h264_mmal

Compiled the latest source with neon optimizations. zmc' with further reduced cpu utilization and also zma. By the way, this is with sv3c cameras using rtsp feed of 640x360.

Re: Raspberry pi3 and h264_mmal

I added the fallback to h264 software decoding if h264_mmal is busy. I got the following results with top: With software decoding only for 2 cameras: PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND 32339 www-data 20 0 186412 47100 43688 S 25.2 5.3 0:56.73 zma 32291 www-data 20 0 189772 53600 4...

Re: Raspberry pi3 and h264_mmal

Seems to be working. It cut zmc's cpu utilization by 50%. My test system is single camera with h264 so dont have to worry about competing zmc processes for one pipeline. I am running raspbian with the following specs: pi@raspberrypi:/mnt/DISK1/build/zm/mmal $ dpkg -l | grep ffmpeg ii ffmpeg 7:3.2.4-...

Raspberry pi3 and h264_mmal

Is there any benefit to using h264_mmal ( the hardware accelerated codec for H264 decoding in the RPI ). The latest ffmpeg libavcodec has support for this codec along with h264_omx (h264 hardware encoder codec). There is only one pipeline though, so only one of the zmc processes could use the codec ...
