Start by explaining the problematics of embedded hardware and problematics of video playback on Linux. Based on experiences of reusing multimedia stacks on embedded hardware we will explore solutions to integrating hardware accelerated video playback in existing software. Due to techincal and legal constraints playing back common media is complex on opensource platforms like Linux. Solutions for common issues such as playing back DVDs and Blu-ray as well as hardware acceleration and subtitle rendering will be explored. The target audience is developers and architects interested in the problematic and solutions/workarounds to these issues. The talk will be fairly technical but does not require programming knowlegde or particular multimedia background.
