Multimedia and Television Support on Linux
The LinuxTV community develops and maintains the Linux Kernel Media Subsystems and several userspace libraries and applications.
The Linux Kernel Media Subsystems provide support for devices like webcams, streaming capture and output, analog TV, digital TV, AM/FM radio, Sofware Digital Radio (SDR), remote controllers and encoders/decoders for compressed video formats. It offers native support for a large number of drivers for commonly available PCI cards and USB devices, but the subsystems are also targeted towards Linux based set-top-boxes and embedded devices like mobile phones.
This is the first draft of the Linux Media Summit 2016 – San Diego on April, 2016
As discussed on our IRC #v4l channel at Freenode, we'll be running a 1-day Linux Media Summit in San Diego on April, 7, just after the Embedded Linux Conference.
Feel free to submit relevant topics related to the Linux Kernel support for media, in order to help us to build the workshop's agenda and take other needs into account when working on it.
As usual, we'll be using the firstname.lastname@example.org ML for the specific discussions about that, so the ones interested on participate on such discussions and/or be present there are requested to subscribe it, and to submit themes of interest via the mailing lists.
Please also send an e-mail if you're intending to join us there, to allow us to be sure that we'll have enough seats for the participants.
Hope to see you there!
This is the report for the Linux Kernel Summit Media Workshop in Seoul, South Corea, Oct, 26 2015.
This is the first workshop dedicated to the Linux Media Controller.
We had a v4l summit back in 2010 in Finland that established the current foundation for the media controller, and to properly satisfy the needs of reporting the pipelines on the smartphone System on a Chip (SoC).
The focus of this year’s workshop was to clarify the kernel➞userspace interfaces and extend the Media Controller to be used on other subsystems that need to represent graphs like Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB), Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA), and Industrial I/O (IIO).
