I actually haven't touched gst-openmax in quite some time. I don't
even have a working OpenMAX IL implementation I play around with,
since Bellagio just stopped working.
IIRC I actually implemented this some time ago for input buffer, but I
didn't find any real benefits to do that. Now I think it would make
sense for the output buffers, at least for encoders, and as for sink
and sources, I haven't really thought about it.
It will take some time before I actually touch gst-openmax again,
since I would probably have to implement my own omxil implementation.
I don't know of any other people working on gst-openmax right now, but
I know Sebastian Dröge is working on yet another GStreamer element,
although he seems to be very quiet about it.
Of course, patches welcome :)
